When asked how the past year has gone, Kleiner Perkins' John Doerr goes into reflexive spin. “Fantastic, really fantastic,” he says. But Doerr can do the math—from Netscape to Google he’s racked up enough home runs over the years to swell his net worth to $2.7 billion. He pauses before continuing and recalibrates. “It’s also been a very ­challenging year.”

He’s referring in part to the sexual harassment and gender discrimination suit filed in June of last year by Kleiner partner Ellen Pao, Doerr’s former chief of staff. He also readily cops to the firm’s high-profile missteps in green tech investing. So he sat down with FORBES for what he says are his most extensive discussions ever about the firm, to discuss what’s gone wrong and how he’s righting the ship.
