 David Weiden Biography

Mr. David Weiden serves as a General Partner and Partner at Khosla Ventures V, L.P. since 2006. His investment focus includes internet software and services, and he serves as an experienced Advisor to startups, particularly in emerging Internet or communications sectors.

David began working in door-to-door sales in high school, where he learned to build businesses one deal at a time. One sales pitch led to a full-time job at McCaw Cellular, now AT&T. In the mid-1990s, while at Morgan Stanley, David helped finance the build-out of nationwide mobile networks working with the companies that are now T-Mobile and Verizon. He later researched the emerging mobile Internet.

In 1995, after being told by his employer Morgan Stanley that email would never be used for business, David jumped at the chance to join Netscape, where he was able to learn from some great leaders and managers. After helping guide strategy for the company, he led the directory and security division, which offered one of the first commercial products to support Linux and open source. Later, David led AOL’s communications, community and instant messaging product divisions as they surpassed 50 million users worldwide. David then joined Tellme Networks as a senior vice president of marketing and business development. Using the quantitative decision-making framework, RIFLE, the company drove revenue to over $100 million. Subsequently, Tellme was acquired by Microsoft.

David holds a bachelor’s degree magna cum laude with highest honors in organizational behavior and economics from Harvard University. He also took additional engineering coursework at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and New York University (NYU). David has been recognized by Fortune and Forbes as one of the top technology investors.
