About Mr. Kanwal Rekhi

Fondly dubbed as the ‘Sage of the New Age’, Kanwal Rekhi, the legendary venture capitalist, is a name to reckon with – not just in Silicon Valley, but also in India. An engineer and an entrepreneur, this millionaire philanthropist is accredited for rearing an entire generation of tech entrepreneurs and guiding them towards innovation and excellence. For someone who had been laid-off thrice at the initial juncture of his career, the long list of outstanding accomplishments is indeed laudable. Regular nine to five jobs never thrilled Rekhi, and he soon realized that his real forte lied in business. Instigated by his entrepreneurial proclivity, he along with his two other colleagues launched their own company, Excelan, that pioneered Ethernet networking technology, one of the basic building blocks of the Internet. By dint of his hard work and ‘never say die attitude’, Rekhi’s career scaled great heights and over the years, he established himself as the ‘Guru’ of Silicon Valley.
