Description: 

February 15, 2011: Four founding partners of Sequoia Capital - Sumir Chadha (in pic), K P Balaraj, S K Jain and Sandeep Singhal has quit the firm to return to their original fund Westbridge Capital Partners, which will invest in publicly-listed companies. The reason behind to quit the company is that the four want to focus on publicly-listed companies, while Sequoia's deals are early stage or growth-stage investments. All four of them will remain on the board of the 20 portfolio companies of Sequoia till it exits these investments. Chadha and Balaraj founded WestBridge Capital Partners in 2000. The firm was merged with Sequoia in 2006. WestBridge had previously raised two venture capital funds of around $200 million and $140 million each.
