Mukesh Gupta

Chief executive & founder, e92plus

Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?

Elon Musk - he's genuinely attempting to change the world through technology innovation and an incredible vision.

What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?

Skills shortage. Everyone is discussing it, but few (especially in government) are doing enough about it.

If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?

I'd go for recent history: get Trump, Putin and Kim Jong-un together and that would at least solve one problem.

How has 2017 been for you?

Too short! So much to do, so little time.

What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?

It's not about the cost or the luxury, but more the experience. So I'd say the fascinating insight I gained and the company I enjoyed when I had the chance to have lunch at Eton with Chris Patten, the last Governor of Hong Kong.

Which global city best matches your personality?

London - the heart of success and multi-culturalism in the UK.

What would be your super-hero power?

I take inspiration from Iron Man!

Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is…when they copy us. But we should take that as a compliment.

What makes you nervous?

Trump! Need I say more?

If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Ras Malai.
