It`s important to point out that when it comes to investor-backed companies, where the startup`s goal is to eventually head toward an IPO, investors usually want the founders` shares passed on to the founders in a way that preserves the company`s ability to act if things don`t work with the founder. It is often difficult for founders to separate from the company, especially since the founders are the company, at least initially.
