Pierre Lamond
Pierre R Lamond (1930- ) is a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, who has specialised in semiconductors, systems and cleantech. He was a partner at Sequoia Capital based in Menlo Park, California from 1981 until he left to join Vinod Khosla's Khosla Ventures as General Partner in March 2009.
Lamond was born in France and he studied Electrical Engineering at Toulouse University as an undergraduate, where he also received a Masters Degree in Physics. He then gained another Masters degree in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University. His first job was as an engineer with Transitron Electronics in 1957. In January 1962 he joined Gordon E. Moore's Fairchild Semiconductor, before he left in 1967 to run that company's spin-off, National Semiconductor, with Charles Sporck and Robert Widlar. At National Semiconductor they made the-then bold move of assembling all their semiconductor components outside the US, in Hong Kong and Singapore. He has also been an executive at Coherent Radiation, where he was CEO until January 1976, and Advent Corp., a home-entertainment equipment company, where he was CEO from March 1976 until May 1977. During his tenure at Sequoia Capital Lamond was chairman at Cypress Semiconductor, Microchip Semiconductor, Vitesse Semiconductor, Redback Networks, Plumtree Software, Verisity and a Director of a number of other companies. He is a past president of the Western Association of Venture Capitalists. He had intended to retire in 2009, but instead joined Khosla, who specialise in energy-related companies, after being impressed with their focus on investing in research-based ventures. While at Sequoia he acted as a mentor for the founders of YouTube. Despite being an early investor in several social network startups, he said in 2007 that "We're in Web 2.0 bubble in my opinion." At Khosla Ventures, Lamond is on the Board of Seeo,Soladigm,Cogenra,Seamicro (sold to AMD), Point Source Power, Skybox.
Lamond is married. His son David is President of Lamond Capital Partners. Lamond has two other children Patricia and Philip.

Pierre Lamond, the VC who scared the YouTube guys, joins Khosla | VentureBeat | News | by Matt Marshall
Pierre Lamond, the VC who scared the YouTube guys, joins Khosla March 3, 2009 8:56 AM Matt Marshall 0 Pierre Lamond, an icon in the Silicon Valley world of venture capital, has joined Khosla Ventures, the venture firm run by another highly respected venture capitalist Vinod Khosla. Lamond, 78, is renowned in valley circles as one of the hardest working venture capitalists, but he also prefers to work behind the scenes, and so doesn’t have the same public profile of other big-name venture capitalists, such as Khosla or John Doerr, of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. (Picture at left top shows Lamond in 1967; at left bottom is a more current picture.) He also exudes the stern demeanor exuded by Sequoia Capital partners, such as co-founder Don Valentine.
