Selling Your Business? Serial Trep Gurbaksh Chahal Says Be Bought, Not Sold
In this ‘Trep Talk Extra, serial entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal talks about the three stages of an entrepreneur — and offers advice for business owners who are ready to sell their companies.
The young multimillionaire entrepreneur says why “you never want to be sold, you want to be bought” and explains why perception and positioning are key to making that happen.
Emigrating from India to California with his family at age 4, Gurbaksh Chahal struggled with bullies at school. But he leaned on family for strength that would become his entrepreneurial fuel. He dropped out of school, started a business and never looked back. Chahal sold his first online advertising startup ClickAgents for $40 million, cashed out his second company BlueLithium for $300 million, and now he’s on his third venture, RadiumOne.
