A years-long bat­tle be­tween Khosla and the Surfrider Foun­da­tion over ac­cess to Martins Beach near Half Moon Bay in Cal­i­for­nia might be near­ing its end. In early Oc­to­ber, Khosla re­port­edly opened the gate on his prop­erty that leads to the beach, fol­low­ing an en­force­ment ac­tion by the Cal­i­for­nia Coastal Com­mis­sion in Septem­ber. His ven­ture cap­i­tal firm, Khosla Ven­tures, has added 2 women to the firm’s in­vest­ment team, notable at a time when the in­dus­try is un­der fire for the un­der­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of women in its ranks. In the past year, 2 IPOS for his firm—cloud com­put­ing out­fits Nu­tanix and Okta— boosted Khosla’s cof­fers.
