The idea: To give people a complete understanding of how much any given home project will cost, and then give them all the tools they need to order the right materials and schedule a professional to get it done. Led by Matt Williams, the former Digg CEO, Andreessen Horowitz entrepreneur in residence, and long-time Amazon employee Pro launched in May after raising a$3.5 million round of funding fromMadrona Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Bezos Expeditions (Jeff Bezos’ personalventurecapitalfirm), and others.

Williams told Business Insider thatover half of Pro’s 30-person team has worked at Amazon at some point, and part of what makes the team so strong is its members’ robust engineering background.
