How many LPs does a VC typically have?

JASON LEMKIN

Maybe 20, as a rough average.

The reason I’m saying that is conventional thinking is it’s best to not have any individual LP with > 10% of the fund.  Many LPs do “turn over” even if the funds perform well as managers leave, strategy changes, etc.

3-4 with 5-10% each, maybe one anchor you let cross that 10% line … that’s half or more of your fund.

Some with smaller stakes.

Adds up to ~20.
