555-sathayeKhosla Ventures loses one of its general partners.

FORTUNE -- Venture capitalist Shirish Sathaye has quietly stepped down as a general partner with Khosla Ventures, Fortune has learned.

His deals at Khosla have included Bidgely, Big Switch Networks, Kumu Networks, DB Networks, LightSail Energy, ParStream, NutaniX and TraceVector.

A firm spokeswoman confirmed that Sathaye's final day was last Friday. No word yet on his future plans, or if he will maintain his Khosla board seats.

  • Notes on the Khosla Ventures fundraise

    Some details on Khosla Ventures' new $1 billion VC fund.

    Khosla Ventures last week announced that it has closed its fourth general fund with $1.05 billion in capital commitments. A few notes, based on conversations with multiple sources:
