The thing is, if you are Sequoia — you don’t have to sweat it.

Yes, maybe they put $50m in (I’m not sure the exact amount, but a guess: Yik Yak’s New Funding Round Confirmed As Sequoia Leads $61M Investment )

Yes, that’s a lot for a mere mortal VC fund.

But.

Sequoia made $4,000,000,000 on WhatsApp alone.  $4 Billion.

So.  You gotta take some risks.  Yik Yak is another break-out mobile social network.  Should it fail, and they lose all of it, that would be rough.

But they probably won’t.

And it’s still a drop in the bucket for them.
