For an Internet startup that secures, say $15m, in Series A funding, how much would the founders typically be drawing as salary?

In the Bay Area, $1X0,000.

Once you raise $5m+ it’s time to pay the founders the low or middle end of “normal”. Founders may have different views of which end of normal.

The high end of normal may be OK, but it will create a quiet concern among your investors.

Adjusting a bit for family size (kids), etc. won’t raise any concerns.
