The interests of founders and their companies can diverge at several important junctures in a company’s lifecycle. Founders must understand when their interests are distinct from their company, and how to continue a company’s upward trajectory, while simultaneously protecting themselves.

Ultimately, the success of the company should mean the success of its founders.
