Suneel is an expert at accelerating growth and innovation. In less than two years, he helped grow Groupon from a tiny startup into a multi-billion dollar company. Prior to serving as Groupon’s first vice president of product, he built products for Mozilla, blogged for MTV, developed television concepts for Sony Pictures, led trade efforts in Ghana, wrote speeches in President Clinton’s West Wing, and produced an interactive film project with his brother, Dr. Sanjay Gupta (CNN), which debuted at South by Southwest. He since founded and serves as the CEO of RISE, which is tackling the obesity epidemic through personalized mobile technology, and his company successfully raised funding from Greylock and Google.

In presentations, he looks at how to spark and accelerate innovation and capitalize on disruptions to build a digital product from scratch. He also shares insights on how to manage the hyper-growth that follows.

Suneel is an expert on lean product development, and was handpicked by Eric Ries to be the closing keynote speaker at the Lean Startup conference in 2011. He's been heralded as one of the most inspiring product speakers in the country by leaders at Deloitte and Walgreens. He has guest lectured at universities around the world, including Stanford University.

Suneel is also a lawyer and filmmaker. He started his career in the Clinton White House where he served as a speechwriter, learning from West Wing staffers like Michael McCurry and Rahm Emanuel. A few years later, he was asked to co-author the national platform for the Democratic Party.

In the media world, he blogged for MTV and produced the Kahani Movement, an interactive film project about the first generation of Indian-Americans, which debuted at South by Southwest with his brother, Dr. Sanjay Gupta (CNN). He also worked for the president of Sony Pictures Television when the studio was investing in new creative concepts like Breaking Bad.

Suneel has always moved quickly. In less than six years total, he earned a BS from the University of Michigan, an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management, and a JD from Northwestern University School of Law.
