The Venture Capital Executive Compensation Survey

The venture capital community entrusts Advanced-HR to conduct the Venture Capital Executive Compensation Survey each year.

In late summer, Advanced-HR conducts the exclusive Venture Capital Executive Compensation Survey (VCECS) for private, venture backed companies of the survey’s sponsoring venture firms. After all surveys have been uploaded and reviewed, an Excel-based executive compensation report is produced and distributed to the sponsoring firms and participating portfolio companies in October.

Advanced-HR expanded the survey, which was previously conducted by Benchmark Capital for only the technology industry. The VC Executive Compensation Survey now includes more than 40 participating venture firms with data contributed by more than 800 private, venture backed companies in the technology, clean tech and life science industries.

An additional benefit of the VCECS includes portfolio specific data for each participating venture firm. For venture firm customers who desire a subset of the entire survey, custom reports may be produced to include blinded portfolio company data for venture firms that agree to participate in the data subset.
