Ask HN: How do YC/Techstars partners get compensated?
12 points by vinnyglennon 1145 days ago | past | web | 3 comments
I assume it is a % of the returns and different per person, but is this vested? Is it only the delta of the companies since that partner joined?



For YC, this is from their application page:

We usually invest $11,000 + $3000n, where n is the number of participating founders, up to 3 (i.e. 2 founders get $17,000, 3 or more get $20,000), in return for between 2% and 10% of the company. The average is 7%. [1]

The question is asking about YC/techstar partners, not founders.

Yep, I am referring to the actual partners. http://www.quora.com/Y-Combinator/How-are-YC-partners-compen... is the only data point I know of so far.
