By my estimates, this number can range from 30,000- 45,000.  There are a multitude of variables to consider.
Are you referring to total active firms as of year-end 2023 or firms that will have launched by year-end 2023?

There is no hard data on this because most of the filings are done at a fund level, instead of at the Firm level. A firm will often manage a family of funds. VC Lab estimates that ~9,500 new VC firms will launch within 5 years.
