Carving My Destiny: Lessons from My Entrepreneurial Ventures, with Dr. Kedar Gupta

Thursday, May 23rd, 2024, 6:30 pm

Gibson's Bookstore is pleased to welcome Hollis, NH businessman Dr. Kedar Gupta as he presents his business memoir, Carving My Destiny: Lessons from My Entrepreneurial Ventures, about his entrepreneurial journey in NH to encourage others to dream big, take risks and learn from both the mistakes he made and the success he found.

How far can a $1,000 investment take an ambitious entrepreneur? On its own, not very far. With innovation, grit, and an insatiable drive, Dr. Kedar Gupta paved the way for the solar industry and built GT Solar, a global leader in solar power that had over $240 million in revenue when it went public. Promising at least one twist per chapter, the story of Gupta (who arrived in NYC with $5 in his pocket in 1968) reads no less than an edge-of-the-seat thriller for those who intend to pick up this book for their entrepreneurial journey.

Gupta honestly recounts his journey, taking readers along the adventures of corporate politics, near-bankruptcy, IPOs, recession, market changes, cross-cultural business ethics, and a surprise visit from the White House. These stories often remain in the minds of protagonists and people closely associated with them, but Kedar Gupta welcomes readers in. It is also an inspiring book and proof that reality is far more thrilling than fiction. He aims to encourage people to take risks, dream big and work towards their own success.

About the author: Dr. Kedar Gupta is a clean technology expert who paved the way for the solar industry. He came to America with $5 in his pocket and went on to later co-found GT Solar, which grew to $240 million in revenue by the time it went public.
