How Much Money Founders Make

Founders of Professional Service Firms Earning $1+ Million

Collective 54’s Chart of the Week shows the bigger the firm, the more money the Founder makes. The data reveals three clusters:

1) 1-50 employees = Founder income $100k-$200k
2) 100-150 employees = Founder income $1+ million
3) 200+ employees = Founder income $1.5 -$2 million

Interesting note: Firms run by co-founders making less. Why? Profit pool getting shared by more than one person.

Lesson? Scale.
