Venture Capitalists of Instagram

For being a near-requirement these days, Instagram is still not really where VCs are hanging out. Can they be blamed? Safe to say their hands are full with more pressing matters. (Does this mean we’ve found an industry where a low Instagram follower count might be a good thing?)

When they are feeling social, they’re more apt to hold forth on Twitter, as is true for the tech world at large. If an investor is on Instagram, they often fall into two camps: new-age punch or endearingly old-school. There are striations, of course, and we’re here to tell those stories.  Here, a round-up of our most favorite VC personalities.
