Bikram Dasgupta has never believed in doing cliched things.
Rather he has always aspired to make things better, to touch upon lives and give back to the society at large. He keeps on his fire alive, keeps his hunger going to create a stronger model of self-discovery. He has always aimed beyond the horizon and aspired to give guidance, charity and life’s lessons to hundreds of those whose lives he has touched upon. Always aspire like he did to do something that none has ever done before!
It’s good to have dreams, for they lay the foundation to aspiration. But BDG warns, ‘Never Fantasize.’ Take risk but do not run after a fantasy that cannot be turned into a sustainable aspiration. Bikram Dasgupta had dreams to do something unique and he did it. Be it the first Intelligent Building of India ‘Infinity,’ to his company conglomerate ‘Globsyn,’ BDG has fulfilled his dreams and now on a complete departure from the professional world, he gives back to the society. Dream like him, never fantasize.

There are many of us who have worked, built families, are involved in various social/cultural activities for well over 30+ years. In the age group of 55+ years...

Kalyani – a Bikram Dasgupta initiative is a not for profit foundation with a charter of giving back to the most-needy sections of society and has been designed to create a more equitable social fabric around us. The foundation has been named after BDG’s mother Kalyani – one who has been the biggest source of inspiration in his life. He has picked up areas very close to his heart in an endeavour to fulfil the needs of people whose lives are less fortunate than ours.
Calcutta Broadway is a unique platform where Bikram Dasgupta brings in a Unique form of Philanthropy in the realm of Music, Theatre and Performing arts. A realm where cultural heritage of Bengal blends with contemporary fusion music, theatre and art along with BDG’s wish to bring to a larger audience the budding artistes who otherwise do not get a platformas well as look after them and their families’ medical needs through the unique concept of BROADWAY HEALTH CARD.
Bikram Dasgupta believes that technology plays and will continue to play a disruptive role in how we interact with the world, produce products or services, transact and drive efficiencies. Hence, he invests both actively and passively during various phases of a startup's lifecycle, those that are innovative, technology driven, product or service and are looking for investors. He also gives back to the society through charity including his popular ‘Feed The Poor’ scheme that helped feed thousands of migrant labourers in Southern states of India during COVID-19 Lockdown.
Bikram Dasgupta knows where it pinches to be alive for budding artistes who are not paid high and regular salaries. To provide them health insurance benefits, BDG Foundation has brought a comprehensive Broadway Health Card, that has benefitted 156 beneficiaries consisting of family members of artistes. The Foundation will help many more in the days to come. This card is the 1st Third Party Health Insurance Card of India for young performing artistes and covers 6 family members, including parents, spouses and kids.
BDG Foundation has extended support to 144 Baul families of Santiniketan. These folk artistes have been living in penury, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown and lack of livelihood. This comes as an extension of BDG’s support for the marginalized informal sector, who are facing an unprecedented economic crisis, due to the changed times.
Bikram Dasgupta has always done it his way. Instead of following others, he created stories through his real-life that can inspire a whole new generation to follow him. These are also tales that he himself experienced first-hand that had a deep impact on laying his foundation as an entrepreneur. He is now here to share those life’s lessons, his real-life stories that could help you frame your own unique stories.Learn More BDG Profile
Long before anyone had even dreamt of it. With the creation of the concept of Intelligent Buildings, he had defined way back in 1996, that ‘Offshore’ Software development wasthe future. He set up the first fully automated SMT or Surface Mount Technology plant of India at Okhla, that produced 10,000 motherboards for Dell. The $50m 100% export order for Computer Mother boards for DELL Computers, was the first of its kind in India. He had conceived, developed, delivered single handedly the entire set up of the Dell Factory. For BDG always had been a man of vision and could think of emerging and future trends of the IT Industry much in advance.
Bikram Dasgupta started Globsyn with a vision to make a difference for the youth in the IT Industry and show them the way forward. By then he had been the co-Founder of PCL, that went on to become one of the largest PC companies of India, competing with HCL and WIPRO. BDG took PCL to the public investors and it was over subscribed 48 times! It had 44 Offices, 1600+ employees in 1984 and a Factory in Noida. Armed with this experience of running PCL, BDG started thinking of setting up a Company with a difference. Thus, Globsyn was born on principles of building Institution and Infrastructure (I&I model). Globsyn Finishing School, Globsyn Business School Infinity and Globsyn Crystals ensured youngsters from colleges would get into GFS or GBS, for their training and work in a Company housedat Infinity. BDG’s baby Globsyn is today a successful international giant.
