Gurbaksh Chahal, Internet Entrepreneur

Gurbaksh Chahal is an internet entrepreneur who sold his first company for 40 million dollars at the age of 18.

His family arrived in California from India when he was four years old, and Gurbaksh was brought up as a devout Sikh. This meant when he made the decision to cut his hair and stop wearing the traditional turban as a teenager it was very traumatic for his parents.

Gurbaksh is now 28, and is working on his third start-up company. He talks to Mike Williams about his life, his motivation and what religion, business and wealth all mean to him.
