Co-Founder Departs Quora
After co-founding Quora in 2009, Charlie Cheever is stepping back from a day-to-day role at the question-and-answer company. The departure, however, isn’t anything out of the ordinary,
according to TechCrunch. “It’s not uncommon for co-founders to leave a company as it scales or reaches a new life stage,” it writes. “Sometimes people burn out. Sometimes a
person who is great at early product development isn’t happy or isn’t a good fit at a company that is substantially larger.” Quora just closed $50 million in funding from co-founder
Adam D’Angelo’s personal capital and Peter Thiel.
