One founder companies can work, against the odds hello, Mark Zuckerberg. So can three founder companies hello, biz, ev, and jack.
In three founder companies, the politics can be tough — gang-up votes, jockeying for board seats, etc. Four is an extremely unstable configuration and five is right out.
