What is a founder?

A founder is an individual who starts or establishes a business or organization. Founders take on the risk and reward of creating something new, from a product or service to a new market opportunity.

The founder is often the visionary for the company, setting its strategic direction, making key business decisions, and often is the chief spokesperson. Founders often wear many hats, especially in the early stages, doing everything from product development to sales and marketing, to raising capital.
