About Suneel Gupta

Suneel Gupta is the author of the bestselling book "Backable." The book is rooted in Suneel’s journey from the "Face of Failure" for the New York Times to the "New Face of Innovation" for the New York Stock Exchange. Suneel is the founding CEO of RISE, which partnered with then-First Lady Michelle Obama to deliver low-cost healthcare services to people in need. RISE was named Apple's "App of the Year" and sold in a successful exit to One Medical (NASDAQ: ONEM). Suneel later ran for U.S. Congress and now serves on faculty at Harvard University and as an emissary for Gross National Happiness between the United States and the Kingdom of Bhutan.

When a reporter once asked Suneel about his purpose, his response was to “find good people, and inspire them to do what inspires them.”
