I just read the WSJ story on this, and the venture firms typical investments differed from the Photobucket investment. Photobucket was much smaller than their usual portfolio companies and needed much less money than the venture firm usually gave. I think that's a pretty solid excuse, though it looks bad on the face of it because the return was so good.

I have no idea if they are an early/late stage investor. According to paidcontent the total investment was around $3 million -- that's not change.

The average investment by the firm was $35M.

My bad. I take back what I said. That does qualify as a private individual investment. Is there a link to where you got that number from? Thanks!
