Vinod Khosla of Khosla Ventures is a widely respected venture capitalist with investments in companies like GroupMe, Slide, AppNexus, and Jawbone.
He told the TechCrunch Disrupt audience that he doesn’t consider himself a venture capitalist. Instead, he calls himself a venture assistant.
“Everything is a deal to [venture capitalists]. It’s not about building a great company, which is what entrepreneurs need,” he says. “I probably spend more time recruiting for our companies than on any other activity I do.”
