IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: GHULAB KHAN - VENTURE CAPITALIST

Rate this Entry

Many of America's most famous companies are around today because the early founders of the company found an individual willing to take a chance on investing in the company and helping it move from a start up venture to a grown up company. The venture capital investors who provide this money often are taking tremendous risks since many of the ventures ultimately fail. And that is why banks and more conservative financial institutions are often not willing to take a chance.



One of the most successful venture capitalists is Pakistan-born Ghulab Khan who came to this country as a foreign student at Stanford where he got a masters in engineering and then went on to receive an MBA at Harvard. Among the more successful startups his firm supported - Google, Apple, Youtube, eBay and Yahoo. Pretty good choices! That would largely explain why Mr. Khan is one of our country's wealthiest individuals.

    Greg, as long as we are talking about venture capitalists, perhaps, the preeminent firm in the VC space has to be Kleiner Perkin. Supplied below is a link to some of the start-ups they have been involved with:

    Their General Partner happens to be a member of the Forbes 400, the son of an Army Officer and someone who initally came here as a student:

    P.S. On the left of the page are more ideas for your immigrant of the day column, as and when you need them!

    Is that page accurate? I thought he was born in Pune as his Wikipedia entry states.

    And while we are fighting over who should get to live in this country, the US continues to slip in the best places to live rankings -

    This has the full list.

    A card often played by illegals is that they are from extremely poor countries with horrible living conditions.

    Check out where Mexico and other Latin American countries stand w.r.t. India.

    The bottom part of the list is completely dominated by countries from Asia and Africa.

    Another Voice, when you claimed that you represent the poorest of the poor and I said that the poorest of the poor live in Africa, this is what I meant.

    You should hope for the sake of other Latinos that there is no guest worker program. If there is, Mexicans and Central Americans will lose their monopoly over unskilled jobs.

    In that case they will ask for special quotas for Mexico and Latin America.

    Even if congress comes with 500,000 workers per year guest worker program the illegals would stop jumping the border.

    It is good to hear about him from but when I tried to check his entire profile from the link provided under his name, I have found a message saying 'wikipedia couldn't find any article under this name'. Could you help in this regard

    Looks like the link has been removed. It was linked from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistani_American.
