Gurbaksh Chahal was born in Punjab, India, but moved to the US with his family at a young age. His relentless pursuit of creating a new business led him to the world of digital advertising. Gurbaksh started his career at the early age of 16 and soon became a successful four-time entrepreneur with ClickAgents, BlueLithium, RadiumOne, and VendorCloud.
The companies Gurbaksh founded from scratch, have grown to employ thousands of people worldwide. Given his triumphant entrepreneurial success, he was invited to the Oprah Winfrey Show, an honor only a few Indian-Americans have ever received.
Apart from being a successful entrepreneur, he is passionate about starting and growing companies that focus on cutting edge technologies.
Gurbaksh Chahal firmly believes that preserving the status quo is not a winning strategy. He also believes that to achieve success, you must go through an incredible journey of ups & downs.
And with the motto of ‘giving back to the society,’ he has also dedicated a fully registered 501(c) 3 non-profit called “The Chahal Foundation.” This global foundation spreads awareness around social causes, providing university scholarships and mentorships, while also supporting disaster relief efforts, building awareness to help eradicate child sex trafficking, and improving schools in third world countries.
