This is a recording of Vinod Khosla's presentation on alternative sources of energy, such as making ethanol a viable substitute for much of the petroleum now used to fuel cars, hosted at Think Equity's annual Growth Conference at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco (Sept 11-&', 2006, http://www.thinkequity.com/about/
conf_Growth_06.html#agenda). Famed venture capitalist, Vinod Khosla is considered one of the most influential and successful investors in Silicon Valley. He has been called the top VC in the world by Forbes magazine in their annual Midas survey. Vinod has become a key leader in the "green-revolution" by "thinking outside the barrel" with the use of Ethanol as a gasoline substitute. Vinod is one of the co-founders of Sun Microsystems, a general partner of Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers and founder of Khosla Ventures. $1.00 invested in a Vinod portfolio company, where he sat on the board, returned a mind numbing $71.00.
