David Weiden is a partner at Khosla Ventures.

At Khosla Ventures, David has led investments including Aliph aka Jawbone, Bitfone (HPQ), iLike, RingCentral, Slide and WideOrbit. Prior personal investments and advisor relationships include Good Technology (MOT), Ingenio (T), loopt, LogMeIn, Opsware (HPQ), SmartPay and Tellme (MSFT).

Beginning in door-to-door sales in high school, David has learned the value closing the sale. One pitch led to a full-time job at McCaw Cellular, now AT&T. In the mid-1990’s at Morgan Stanley he helped finance the buildout of nationwide mobile networks working with what is now T-Mobile and Verizon, and later researching the emerging Mobile Internet.

David joined Netscape in 1995 where he learned from some great leaders and managers. After pitching in on strategy, he led the Directory & Security division that offered among the first commercial products supporting Linux and open source. Later, David led AOL’s Communications, Community & Instant Messaging product divisions as they surpassed 50MM users worldwide. David then joined Tellme Networks as SVP Marketing & Business Development. Using a quantitative framework called Rifle, his team helped grow the company’s revenue beyond $100M in revenue and to profitability. Microsoft subsequently acquired Tellme.
