Survey finds that compensation in venture capital varies based on level and gender

January 12, 2023
By: Jonathan Dillon

In larger VC firms with more assets under management (AUM), women at all levels received pay in line with what men received, with the median total cash for female general partners above that of the men. However, women at smaller AUM firms received significantly less total cash compensation than men, particularly at the managing general partner level, according to a survey on professional compensation in venture capital firms conducted by First Republic Bank recently and J. Thelander Consulting, Inc.  

Over half of survey participants said their firms have policies and programs in place to promote diversity in recruiting and career development.
