SUNEEL GUPTA is a visiting scholar at Harvard Medical School. He has been hailed as “The New Face of Innovation” by the New York Stock Exchange magazine.
Suneel is the co-founder and former CEO of Rise, a healthcare company that uses technology to shrink the cost of quality health care. After the startup served over 1,000 patients, First Lady Michelle Obama asked Rise to be her team’s official technology partner. Through this public-private partnership, together they delivered health coaching to lower-income areas of the country. In 2016, Michael Bloomberg convened a bipartisan commission on the Future of Work, and Suneel was asked to join and bring Rise’s lessons to policymakers.
Gupta holds an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and a law degree from Northwestern Law School. He was sworn in by Justice Roberts to practice in front of the United States Supreme Court.
He has been married for eight years to Leena Rao, a journalist who most recently wrote for Fortunemagazine. They have two daughters: Sammy, who is five years old, and Serena, who just turned one.
