1 in 3 founders wont be CEO at exit

When you finally exit or IPO, will you be the CEO or will someone else be running the company? It’s a great question so using the data of Blosson Ventures I analysed 191 tech IPO’s to figure it out. Specifically, I looked at the CEO at the time of IPO/exit and compared it to the list of key founders to determine whether or not a founder was the CEO at exit. The data says there is a 32% chance you won’t be the CEO. 1 in 3 is pretty high when you’re talking about such an important topic. The information is below.
