KP Outsources’ Khosla to TiE

Vinod Khosla, a GP at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, is making a visit to Hyderabad, India, Feb. 20, to meet entrepreneurs.

His visit is timed with the relaunch of the Hyderabad chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs, a group Khosla helped found.

But before he set off for his trip, Khosla had some business to take care of at Sun Microsystems, the company he co-founded while at Stanford University with Scott McNealy, Andy Bechtolsheim and Bill Joy 20 years ago. Sun, it seems, was acquiring one of its co-founders in a deal structured around a ham sandwich.

Bechtolsheim and his start-up Kealia Inc. will now become a part of Sun, the companies announced last week. McNealy said the idea for the acquisition of Kealia – which brings Bechtolsheim back to Sun – came up during that recent lunch.

Details, other than the sandwich, were not released.
