Founder's syndrome

Founder's syndrome (also founderitis[1][2]) is the difficulty faced by organizations, and in particular young companies such as start-ups, where one or more founders maintain disproportionate power and influence following the effective initial establishment of the organization, leading to a wide range of problems.[3][4][5][6] The syndrome occurs in both non-profit and for-profit organizations or companies.
