Srikanth Nadhamuni is a technologist and entrepreneur who spent a decade and a half in California’s Silicon Valley designing CPUs, developing software products and creating internet startups.
Srikanth was inspired by his grandfather’s entrepreneurial zeal, who with his 10th grade education travelled globally, imported new equipment and technology and setup several companies in wood and plastics in Mysore, India.
Srikanth has a BE from the University of Mysore and an MS in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University. He worked at Sun Microsystems on the UltraSparc, the most successful CPU project at Sun. At Intel he worked on the Pentium projects. This was followed by a stint at Silicon Graphics creating an interactive TV platform. In 1996 he joined the initial team of Healtheon | WebMD, a Jim Clark and Kleiner Perkins startup. This was followed by GlobeTrades, an unsuccessful and highly educational startup failure. He moved to India in 2002 to work on social development initiatives and partnered with Nandan Nilekani (then CEO of Infosys) to start the eGovernments Foundation. This NGO focuses on improving municipal governance in 275+ Indian cities through the use of IT-enabled eGovernance products. Following that, he was made the Head of Technology by the UID Authority of India. He setup the Aadhaar technology centre that would design and develop a biometric-based Identity Management system for India’s 1.2 billion population.
Srikanth is currently the CEO of Khosla Labs which he and Vinod Khosla setup in Oct. 2012.
