How to use founder in a sentence?

  1. Matter NYC founder Joseph Imperatrice:

    In my 16 year career as an officer Founder of BLUE LIVES MATTER-NYC, I have never seen nor imagined we would be living in a time where criminals are justified for their actions and officers are continuously bashed and blamed. Defunding the police, knee jerk reactions to passing bills such as Bail Reform, The Diaphragm Bill, and the ending of Qualified immunity are sending a direct message to criminals that they can basically do whatever they want and they will get away with it.

  2. John Bolton:

    Our great 'Founder' did not want, and would not condone, False Fraudulent Elections!

  3. Greg Glassman:

    It did so well and became so popular that it has become a thing far larger than I could have hoped, the world has changed, but the magnificent human machine, the proven benefits of CrossFit, and its market opportunity remain unchanged. It is time for the founder to bid adieu and find other creative outlets.

  4. Bill Gross:

    For some reason still unbeknownst to me they didn't think that was a good idea and they did fire me, in the last few weeks, it blindsided me; I had no idea that an executive committee could fire a founder and the titular leader of the company.

  5. Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy:

    Through me you pass into the city of woe: Through me you pass into eternal pain: Through me among the people lost for aye. Justice the founder of my fabric moved: To rear me was the task of power divine, Supremest wisdom, and primeval love. Before me things create were none, save things Eternal, and eternal I shall endure. All hope abandon, ye who enter here.
