A potential Venture Partner, tells me they can help me raise 30% of my target. 
I know I cannot give them cash or an earning proportional to the amount they raised. Is a percentage of carry the only compensation option?
How much would be a reasonable percentage of the carry for leads to raise 30% of the total fund?

Venture Partner claims and reality often do not match up to reality. As a result, most Venture Partners are terminated by Managing Partners. So, use the Venture Share agreement and place a six month cliff on the Carried Interest venting. If they do not reach 15% of the fund size after 6 months, then terminate them.

Thank you. 
I am still trying to understand, in the best case scenario, what is the share of the carry that I can allocate?
Even though most of the venture partners do not deliver, it is a fair question for Venture Partners to ask, and I do not have an answer to it.
There is a table in the Venture Share Agreement for equity allocation.
