One of the firms in negotiations with EEStor to obtain a license in the early 2008 timeframe approached Khosla with their business plan and funding request. He politely took the meeting but quickly cut to the chase: was this firm offering any opportunity--now or in the future-- to obtain shares of EEStor? No. Khosla pointed out that the main reason he was willing to entertain the opportunity was on the chance that maybe the firm had positioned a deal with EEStor which would include an equity stake. What he did not point out was that he very likely had access to more information about EEStor Inc. than the individuals making the pitch.
