Vinod Khosla interview

30 Sep, 2011

Arrington interviews Sun Microsystems co-founder Khosla at Startup Weekend about his view of the venture capital industry. Arrington:

You’re a badass dude in general…and if you don’t mind I’d like to spend most of our talk talking about how badass you are.

Khosla says he doesn’t identify as a VC:

I don’t have a very good view of venture capitalists, I refuse to call myself a venture capitalist…I think I’m a venture assistant out here to help entrepreneurs build companies. I’m not in the VC business because to me that means golf and parties.
