Join legendary Silicon Valley investor Vinod Khosla on April 24th as he describes Khosla Ventures’ strategies to grow internet, mobile, and clean technology businesses. With more than $1b under investment, Khosla Ventures provides seed, first round, mezzanine, and late stage financing. Khosla Ventures was ranked as one of the top 10 most active investors of 2012 by CB Insights, and it’s recently closed $1b fund has been described as one of the five largest new funds in the U.S. Khosla Ventures invests primarily in mobile, Internet, consumer health, alternative energy, energy efficiency, storage, materials, and other unconventional areas. Their seed and main funds look for slightly different things, but both funds seek out unfair advantages: proprietary, protected technological advances; business model innovations; unique partnerships; top-notch teams.
In addition to his role in founding Khosla Ventures, Mr. Khosla was a co-founder of Sun Microsystems, served as a past General Partner at Kleiner Perkins, and was a founding member of TiE. He is a CMU alumnus.
