The Most Successful Industry Family “Khosrowshahi” in Homeland

Ali and Hadi Partovi may not be household names, but the twins have quietly helped launch some of Silicon Valley’s biggest startups of recent vintage. Hadi co-founded Tellme Networks, which Microsoft bought for a reported $800 million. Ali co-founded Internet advertising pioneer LinkExchange, which Microsoft bought for $265 million; he later became one of the first investors in Zappos, the online shoe retailer launched by LinkExchange co-founder Tony Hsieh. Amazon bought that one for about $850 million.
