Klein­er Perkins is lin­ing up a new $400M tech fund

Leg­endary Sil­i­con Val­ley ven­ture group Klein­er Perkins Cau­field & By­ers — a play­er in the biotech are­na — has out­lined plans to raise $400 mil­lion for a new fund in a fil­ing yes­ter­day with the SEC.

That num­ber may well just be a place hold­er for the fi­nal fig­ure. CN­BC re­port­ed a few weeks ago that Klein­er Perkins was rais­ing two funds for a to­tal of about $1.3 bil­lion, quot­ing sources. About $800 mil­lion of that was be­ing re­served for more ma­ture com­pa­nies while the rest would be start­up ori­ent­ed.
