    Dictionary definition of owner says that ‘a person who owns something is known as owner’ and dictionary definition of co-founder says that ‘ a co-founder is a joint founder of something’.

    For example, a company whose core business function is manufacturing soap, may outsource packaging function to a third party if that is financially beneficial.
