Jared Leto has made more than 50 investments in early-stage tech companies.
Leto is an aggressive investor, he told CNBC, and has an impressive stable of companies he was able to invest in early on. He invested in Nest before Google bought it in 2014 for $3.2 billion, as well as Airbnb and Uber.
He also told CNBC that he met with Instagram to discuss an investment just days before Facebook purchased them for $1 billion in 2012.
“They were looking around and giggling,” he said. “And I said, ‘What’s so funny?'”
