Die Hard Four-Time Successful Entrepreneur.

The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that strives to restore hope and dreams throughout communities around the globe. It strives to provide the needed education assistance to the children of need.

At the age of 16, Gurbaksh dropped out of high school to pursue his dream as an entrepreneur and started his first company, ClickAgents. The inception of ClickAgents started like many well-known Silicon Valley’s, from his family home. His first company was one of the first ad networks, focused around performance based advertising. Eighteen months later, Gurbaksh Chahal sold ClickAgents for $40 million to a publicly traded company called ValueClick (now called, Conversant Media). There, he became one of the youngest executives of a public company.

Chahal had founded his second start-up in the advertising sector at the age of 21. Gurbaksh boot-strapped this company and grew it to over 150 employees. The company became the leading behaviorally targeted advertising firm, to be one of the first in the sector. 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 in being named Innovator of the Year. Within three years of its inception, BlueLithium was acquired by Yahoo Inc. for over $300 million.

The Chahal Foundation

• Creating awareness of social causes

• Supporting disaster relief efforts
• Improving schools in third world countries
• Creating awareness to eradicate child sex trafficking

Gurbaksh Chahal believes that to achieve success, you must go through an incredible journey of ups and downs. And once you do, you feel humbled. The beauty of the American Dream is that once you’ve seen it, you start to think about ways in which to give back to the community, to continue to support that dream for others. He shares his life lessons in his award-winning and international best-seller book, The Dream.

Everyone should continue to remind themselves that we all are living with a shared commitment for a better world, towards a greater purpose. No one can take that away this belief, so long a person believes in it. Life’s biggest profit isn’t a number; it’s what we give back to the people that inspire us.
