    Why should we use the company’s founder instead founders of the company?

    1. Srishti

      It’s not a subtle error. Company’s founder is an absolute term in the sense that it establishes a relationship of possession. Whereas in case of “of” the relationship between company and founder becomes flexible. It can be any founder.

        Thanks dude☺
