Rising star monitor: providing insight into remuneration and founding team composition of young, high-potential Belgian ventures

Abstract
This report provides a snapshot of the trends and challenges involved in young, high-potential ventures in Belgium. Our insights are based on data gathered from 170 young, high-potential Belgian ventures with 370 founders in a wide cross-section of industries. For a more detailed understanding, we have –where relevant– split up our results for high- versus low-growth ambition ventures (HGV versus LGV). Indeed, even though all sampled ventures show some indication of having high growth potential, only around one third of our respondents also indicated having a high growth ambition in terms of their aspired future company size. This group corresponds to what is now often referred to as scale-ups. Hence, potential does not necessarily equal ambition. In this Monitor, we pay special attention to the topics of founding team composition, their equity split and remuneration.2 As such, it is the first study to provide insight into questions such as how many founders young, high-potential Belgian ventures have, where co-founders are found, how founding teams split their equity and what equity stake they retain. We also provide detailed information on founders’ cash remuneration (e.g., as related to company size and industry).
