About the Company:
Our team has over 30 years of experience in building databases, creating sales leads, and helping sales people & business owners. Our founder, Vin Gupta, also founded InfoUSA & Sales Genie – which he sold for more than $600 million to a private equity group. Now he has founded infofree.com, an even better database & sales leads company, at a much lower price point to help sales people & small business owners.
Vin Gupta – Founder
Vin was born and raised in the village of Rampur Manhyaran, one-hundred miles north of New Delhi. He spent his childhood without electricity, running water and studied in a village school. After high school, he was admitted to the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 1962.
For the next five years, Vin pursued topics in Agricultural Engineering at IIT Kharagpur building a solid foundation for his future educational and professional pursuits. After graduating from IIT Kharagpur in May 1967 with a Bachelor of Technology, he came to the United States with $58 in his pocket and settled in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a dual Master’s candidate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from August 1968 through May 1971, Vin devoted his time and energy to studies in engineering and business management. Earning his Master of Science in Engineering in 1969 and Master of Business Administration in 1971, Vin soon launched his career as a Marketing Research Manager at the Commodore Corporation in Omaha.During his time with the Commodore Corporation, a mobile home manufacturer, Vin recognized the importance of information and database management. He then started infoUSA, first named Business Research Services, then changed to American Business Information with $100 that he borrowed. He ordered all the yellow pages and compiled his first list for mobile home dealers. For the next 13 years, Vin and his associates compiled and categorized the entirety of the United States Yellow Pages directories, with substantial demand from small-business customers. Upon its IPO in 1993, American Business Lists underwent many changes in the ensuing years, becoming infoUSA and, later, infoGroup. In 1996, President Bill Clinton nominated Vin as Counsel General to Bermuda. When confirmed, Vin was nominated to be U.S. Ambassador to Fiji. Due to his commitment to infoUSA, he withdrew his nomination.
In August 2008, Vin retired from his post as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board at infoGroup, leaving a legacy of hands-on leadership and measurable performance with his company. infoGroup was sold to CCMP for $650 million in July 2010.

The Truth about Sales Leads and Mailing Lists
Don’t Expect 100% Accuracy
Most people think that sales leads, mailing lists or databases are 100% accurate. This is simply not possible. Businesses come and go on a daily basis, so maintaining 100% accuracy is a myth. Our databases are not perfect, but they are the best and most accurate in the industry.
We Can’t Qualify Every Business Name
Many people believe that all sales leads are pre-qualified. Most of the time, they will have very high expectations for their sales leads, mailing lists and databases. While we are constantly updating our files, it is simply impossible to guarantee that every name is valid and is a “qualified” lead.
Don’t Expect to Get Rich Quick
Our lists are only one factor in the success of your marketing efforts. A lot depends on your product, pricing, packaging, etc. You won’t get rich overnight using our lists – but if you use them properly, you will increase your sales and profits.
What You Can Expect From Our Sales Leads
On average, you can expect the following accuracy levels:
- Business Database is compiled and updated by us. Our average accuracy is 90% — the Best in the industry!
- Consumer/Homeowner Database are licensed from third parties. Our average accuracy is 85% – nothing better exists.
- Our Weekly Hot Sales Leads such as New Businesses, New Homeowners, New Parents and Newlyweds – come from public sources like county and state licensed files and coverage will vary greatly by geography. We are only as good as our suppliers and have no control over them, average accuracy is 80%.

When You Are Dealing with Hundreds of Millions of Records…
It is very possible that there will be inaccuracies and that there will be some holes and obsolete names. Unfortunately, that is just the nature of this business. If anyone tells you otherwise, they are not telling the TRUTH!
