- The “average” VC probably makes a $500k salary (some less, some far more).
- VCs don’t earn much carry – this surprised me, as PE investors do
- A top founder can make a lot more than even the best of VCs
- A pretty good VC probably makes more than a pretty good founder
- A mediocre VC makes a lot, lot, lot, lot more than a mediocre founder and if lucky and has good partners, can make more than a pretty good and successful founder
