If I hire someone at a Principal level at my VC firm what's the general carry I should offer? Is there a rough breakdown anywhere of what is market in terms of carry offered for various roles at a VC firm?

We recommend that you review VC Lab's Venture Share agreement. Principal level can receive anywhere from strategic to executive level compensation based on the recommended chart.
Mike thank you for your answer. Is there a way to evaluate how much a percentage of carry is worth before investments are made? I am trying to understand if there is a way to estimate $ value and pay someone who prefers to take cash now instead of carry as a VP.

In theory, you could do the math on what the carry is worth at 3x fund and work backwards from there.
