If you were to look at the performance of large funds (those greater than or equal to the vintage year median size) for venture funds between 1983 and 2003, just 2% of the large funds returned more than 2x contributed capital. And 92% of the funds returned less than 1.5x capital. But if you were 24-logo-1to look at the performance of the small funds (those less than the vintage year median size) for those same years, the performance is much better. Indeed, 48% of those funds returned 2x — or, put another way, small funds were 24 times more likely to produce returns above 2x than large funds. And just 36% of small funds returned less than 1.5x capital. Wow.
