An entrepreneur is someone who dares to dream the dreams and is foolish enough to try to make those dreams come true.
Innovative, bottom-up methods will solve problems that now seem intractable—from energy to poverty to disease. Science and technology, powered by the fuel of entrepreneurial energy, are the largest multipliers of resources we have to solve our many social problems.
Our willingness to fail gives us the ability and opportunity to succeed where others may fear to tread. — Michael Jordan
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty six times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. — Michael Jordan

Innovation > Execution > Acceleration

Khosla Labs was setup by Vinod Khosla and Srikanth Nadhamuni in 2012 as an innovation lab to focus on solving large scale problems driven by technology and entrepreneurial zeal.

The team has attracted a set of highly experienced entrepreneurs and professionals who have created successful businesses in India and in the Silicon Valley, with deep product development and implementation experience. This team of Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, principal architects and product designers bring a wealth of startup and large scale project execution experience.

Modus Operandi : The Khosla Labs team of entrepreneurs comes up with several ideas to test and experiment. These projects get prototyped through in-house design and technology teams. These prototypes are pilot tested on the ground to get feedback and market validation. Based on the project traction and business plan, the project gets funded by the Khosla Ventures seed fund and a new company gets spun-off by the lead EIR(s) from the lab.
