So is every initial investor a founder? I think the disconnect is between the definitions of the guys who dreamed it up, and the guy who took a chance and bankrolled it.

In physics, sometimes a person who makes an accidental discovery gets a Nobel but the person who came up with the theory before the accident doesn't.

I’m not sure how the Nobel committee compares to how you define the roll of investment capital in this context. I was highlighting that a personal belief in the value of that role often determines how you frame it.
