Most large tech companies are no longer run by their founders. This is problematic for investors, because a painful corporate bureaucracy develops when a founder leaves and, as a result, risk-taking and innovation deteriorates. Any large tech company no longer run by its founder that tells you otherwise is being disingenuous to its investors.
