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.

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.
