VC’s vs Entrepreneurs, which cohort tend to earn more? | SaaStr

By: Jason M. Lemkin

  • 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

Answer:

  • 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
