Story
Tagline
Die Hard Entrepreneur. Founder of ClickAgents (VCLK), BlueLithium (YHOO), and now RadiumOne.
Introduction
Founder of ClickAgents

At the age of 16, Gurbaksh dropped out of high school to pursue his dream as an entrepreneur and started his first company, ClickAgents. It was one of the first ad networks focused around performance based advertising.

18 months later, ClickAgents was acquired for $40 million by ValueClick (now called, Conversant Media).


In January 2004, Gurbaksh founded his second company, BlueLithium. This time, with an insight into sophisticated new ways that data, optimization and analytics could help web advertisers with behavioral targeting.
Founder of BlueLithium

BlueLithium was named one of the “Top 100 Private Companies in America” for three years in a row by AlwaysOn. In 2006, it joined Google, Skype and Salesforce.com in being named Innovator of the Year.

In 2007, Yahoo acquired BlueLithium for $300 million in cash.


In September 2009, Gurbaksh founded his third online ad company,
 RadiumOne. RadiumOne built intelligent software that automates media buying, making big data actionable for marketers and connects them to their next customer.Founder of RadiumOne
On July 17th, 2014, Gurbaksh launched
 Gravity4, his fourth venture in online advertising. Software has always been used to just store customer data but seldom to generate customers until now.Founder of Gravity4

Introducing Gravity4, a San Francisco based advertising software company, which has developed the World’s First High Frequency Marketing Operating System.

Gravity4’s Marketing OS™ empowers the one-click revolution for brands, agencies, advertisers and CMOs with speed, control and transparency in a $100 billion global market that is still manually driven.

 

Founder of The Chahal Foundation

Inspired by the deadly events relating to the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, Chahal founded the BeProud Foundation with $1 million of his own money. On July 17th, 2014, The Chahal Foundation received it’s 501(c)3 status, and was rebranded to “The Chahal Foundation.” The foundation now focuses on creating awareness of social causes, University Scholarships and Mentorships, Supporting disaster relief efforts, and improving schools in third world countries. 

Education 

On April 2010, Chahal was awarded the Leaders In Management Award and an Honorary Doctorate degree in Commercial Science from Pace University in 2010 in recognition for his career achievements as an entrepreneur. Much of that story Chahal himself told in his international best-selling book, “The Dream.”
