My short take? No startups survive losing founders and being taken over by board members. This famously nearly killed Apple.

Even at Tesla, Elon had buy-in to the design at day one and a role at the company. Money guys rarely complete the job.

Absolutely true. The board members care about one things... sales. And an entrepreneur usually has the heart and soul and PASSION to get creative and move their ideas forward. But with ‘money guys’ running the show they will likely crash and burn.

And your reference to Apple is spot on. At Jobs return the company was a breath away from the end.
