Tech Leaders Salary Survey 2019


What is a typical package for a C-suite role in a high-growth tech venture?


It’s a question that comes up all the time – from investors, business leaders and tech execs alike, all seeking a sense of broader market benchmarks and to compare their compensation structures against organisations at a similar growth stage.


For listed companies, salary information is readily accessible within company reports; whereas for investment-backed ventures, the subject is much more opaque and there is far less data available.


This is an issue, because data can be invaluable to informing key decisions across the whole spectrum of executive compensation – whether it be in the context of attracting, retaining, or incentivising senior talent.  Equally, greater transparency is helpful to the individual, allowing them to compare their current remuneration against the market.


We want to help create that transparency by providing data, insights and analysis on executive compensation, specifically in the high-growth, investment-backed tech sector. As such, we are excited to announce the launch of our 2019 Tech Leaders Salary Survey.


If you are an executive within the high growth tech sector your input would be greatly appreciated.  The survey can be accessed here and should take no longer than five minutes to complete.  All responses will be treated in strict confidence and collated, analysed and reported on an anonymous basis.  We do not ask for names of individuals, companies or investment firms.  As a thank you for your time, a complimentary copy of the research report will be shared with you as soon as it is ready for publication.


The report will explore executive compensation in depth, across the full suite of senior leadership roles. It will analyse the very latest benchmarks and trends in basic salary, bonus, equity and benefits, and the influencing factors behind this data.  This should prove invaluable for:


Business leaders looking to attract, retain or incentivise senior talent

Tech executives wanting to compare their compensation against current market rates 

Investors who are interested in broader compensation benchmarks, beyond their portfolio


Please note, this survey will close on 31st October 2019 and free copies of the report can only be sent to participants who respond within this time.  If you have any queries about the study, or would like any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch – or
