Founder, Chairman and CEO Gravity4, Inc.
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. Eighteen months later, he sold it for $40 million to 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, and 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. The Company builds intelligent software that automates media buying, making big data actionable for marketers and connects them to their next customer. 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 and has developed the World’s First High Frequency Marketing Operating System.
