Khosla Ventures is a VC firm that provides assistance and strategic advice to entrepreneurs working on innovative technologies in a wide range of sectors. The firm has more than $15 billion in assets under management. The firm has an enviable record of utilizing its experienced team of advisors to bring entrepreneurs’ ideas to fruition, particularly with a focus on breakthrough technologies. Khosla Ventures lists 213 companies in its portfolio, including notable investments such as Bold, Cadre, DoorDash, Fundera, Helium, OpenAI, Scribd, Square, Stripe, and Zocdoc. The firm operates two funds; the seed fund focuses on science and innovation experiments, while the main fund concentrates on traditional ventures at early-to-later stages in all areas of technology. KV’s investment philosophy is to invest in the people behind the idea, rather than the idea itself. The firm seeks highly capable founders combined with talented 'A' teams, who have a deep understanding of their field, and are open to filling any knowledge gaps with other experienced professionals. For both KV’s ‘Seed’ and ‘Main’ funds, Khosla Ventures looks for ambitious ideas that may have a significant chance of working, with key technology risks, and potential economic and market benefits having been identified. Additionally, for the seed fund specifically, it also prioritizes the team's ability to mitigate risk at the lowest possible cost, validate the market, and make decisions on which market segment to enter. Indeed, the main criteria that matter are the problem being addressed, the uniqueness of the solution, the team's ability to execute on the plan, and the potential for economic and market benefits. Khosla Ventures sees itself as being in the company-building business, not just in the 'deal' or 'capital' business. They have a history of leveraging relationships to build teams, attract partners, and customers, and then together, build billion-dollar businesses. The company appreciates the value of being at the coal face, interacting with the organizations they have set out to help, principally through providing strategic advice and creative ideas to help refine business plans. It has a direct, straightforward style, and prefers honesty over politeness, and once it has chosen a management team, it backs them and doesn't second-guess them. They are less about micro management and controlling every aspect rather how to facilitate building successful businesses. . Khosla Ventures’ headquarters are located in Menlo Park, California.
