Suneel Gupta

Author, founding CEO of RISE, and visiting scholar at Harvard Medical School

Suneel Gupta lost his Dharma and then discovered it again. He studies the most extraordinary people on the planet to discover and share simple, actionable habits to lift our performance and deepen our daily sense of purpose. His work has been featured by major outlets including CNBC, TED, and the New York Times. His latest book is Everyday Dharma: 8 Essential Practices for Finding Success and Joy in What You Do.

Gupta co-founded and served as the CEO of RISE, a mobile health company that lowered the cost of quality care for thousands of patients. The company was acquired by One Medical. In 2016, First Lady Michelle Obama partnered with RISE to bring health coaching to low-income communities around the United States.

Gupta is a business survivor and the author of the international bestselling book Backable (2020). That book is rooted in his inner journey from twice-failed entrepreneur to becoming a leader behind two IPOs and being named “The New Face of Innovation” by the New York Stock Exchange. The book reveals the mindset shifts and hidden habits of people who are extraordinary at pushing new ideas forward.

Gupta has led and lectured on entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan and is a visiting scholar at Harvard Medical School, where he researches and teaches the interconnection between inner well-being and outer leadership.

He holds an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and a law degree from Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
