When Kevin Systrom's start-up Instagram was seeking funding, Andreessen Horowitz invested $250,000. A sizable sum of dough for a company ran by an unproven CEO. It all paid off, though, when Facebook copped it for $1 billion, netting the VC firm $78,000,000. Still, many people wondered aloud why the two never invested more in Instagram. Hindsight is always 20/20, but Ben just wants to know, "really do it matter as long as I score?"
