About me

Unshakable Confidence, explosive energy, unusual charisma and infectious optimism are few of a long list of adjectives which define Dr. Naveen Gupta’s personality.

Talk to him once and you will be bowled over by the avalanche of energy, confidence and charisma he exudes. He is young, vivacious, a keen observer, a seasoned businessman and a dedicated educationist…has a penchant for art and his love and a keen eye for beauty find strong imposing articulation through the great architecture and interiors of his colleges, University, workplaces and even his home.

A worthy father’s worthy son, business runs in his blood. With no formal training in business, he learnt all the lessons in business management from his mentor—his father, Shri R.L Gupta, a great entrepreneur and a multifaceted personality.

When he started off his journey as a businessman nearly two decades back, he was sure that he was going to make it big. He had full confidence in his abilities but the only deterrent was his young age. Everyone was reluctant to give him the reigns of business as they thought that he lacks experience and was not old enough to understand the intricacies of handling such a huge empire. But his father recognized his potential and gave him a chance, which he fondly calls an opportunity.

“It was not just a chance; for me it was a great opportunity, an opportunity which I couldn’t afford to miss, a key to open the doors of all the dreams which I had been harboring some where deep within my heart.”

He was ready to take risk as he knew deep inside that he has all that it takes to be a good entrepreneur and he took a plunge. Rest is history. Today, he is the CEO of a huge empire of IEC Group of Institutions spread across over 100 acres of land in Greater Noida and Director of several private limited companies.

He proved everybody wrong and took the business to great heights with his Midas touch.

“It’s very important to have faith in your own abilities before others have faith in you.”

In 1999, he took initiative to educate young India, and forayed into the formal education sector and opened IEC College of Engineering & Technology in Greater Noida. What started with only 240 students is now a IEC Group of Institutions having more than 5000 national students and about 500 foreign students. Under his dynamic leadership and able guidance, IEC Group of Institutions offers a wide range of professional courses in Engineering, Management, Pharmacy and Hospitality management.

“I have always looked up to my Dad for inspiration but I knew that I had to carve my own niche. It is always difficult to match up to a father who is successful but gradually people realize your potential also….Even you are born with a silver spoon or have a great wealth, you need to work hard to sustain and maintain it. There is no shortcut to success you need to toil hard and keep confidence in your abilities.”

This confidence and perseverance have been his constant companions through this entire journey and today he is Director of several companies.
