2008 MIT Energy Conference: Morning Keynote: John Doerr, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

John Doerr is a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Together with KPCB's partners, John has backed many of America's best entrepreneurial leaders, including:

  • Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Eric Schmidt: Google
  • Jeff Bezos: Amazon
  • Scott Cook, Bill Campbell: Intuit
  • Andy Bechtolsheim, Scott McNealy, Bill Joy, Vinod Khosla: Sun
  • And the founders of Compaq, Cypress, Macromedia and Symantec.

These ventures have created more than 150,000 new jobs. In 1974 John joined a small chipmaker, Intel, just as they invented the legendary 8080 microprocessor. (He feels he was very lucky, in the right place at the right time). He worked in engineering, marketing and became a top-ranked sales executive. John joined KPCB in 1980 and soon started Silicon Compilers, a VLSI CAD software company, and @Home, the first broadband cable Internet service. John is passionate about:

  • Green technology innovation and policy entrepreneurs to help fight global warming
  • Internet/web ventures with strong network effects
  • Building a new open nationwide wireless network
  • Breakthroughs to prevent pandemic avian flu and global infectious disease
  • Your vision for TNBT (The Next Big Thing)

Only hope a new administration takes people like John Doerr into the fold as important consultants in setting public policy.
