Goro Gupta is the head of four companies and about to start his fifth.

The entrepreneur now heads up a team of twelve employees and learning how to be an effective leader has been an ongoing journey for the 40-year-old.

Goro Gupta’s journey to owning more than 35 properties around the world combined with over 20 years in the finance industry, and a genuine desire to make difference led him to establish Ethical Property Investments.
