Hailing from San Jose, California is the technology entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal. Known to most of his friends as “G,” he left school at the age of 16 to create his own business. This established Click Agents, an Internet advertising company that received a fair amount of success. Two years later, Chahal decided to sell it for $40 million.
He continued his expanding career, launching BlueLithium in January 2004. The company focused on the next generation of online advertising, receiving much attention from cyberspace moguls. Yahoo! eventually bought BlueLithium for $300 million, and Chahal’s vocation remained prosperous.
At 26 years old, Chahal decided to debut his third company, gwallet.com later this year. Accompanying this is his memoir, titled “The Dream.” While waiting for the release of both endeavors, Chahal joined the cast of Fox’s series, Secret Millionaire. The show follows the lives of several millionaires who have opted to leave their lavish world in the hopes of learning survival in an impoverished neighborhood. Required to go undercover, they will be working at minimum-wage jobs and experiencing what it’s like to live in poverty.
