When are we going to see the first

As startups become less about unusual judgement/worldview and more about ingroup/branding, when do you think we’ll see the first institutional ‘pop-star’-style startup founders?

i.e. well-branded kids being presented as ‘CEO’ of startup (without as much power as they would otherwise have), being contracted + managed by some corporation which takes most of the profit…

(same thing happened with the music industry, branding becomes dominant as the whole thing gets de-risked)

already the case in biotech - role of the CEO is to just hang out with the media and look nice, that’s it
