Is re-founder even a word?

is Re-founder even a word?I’m not a stickler for grammar, but I want to know if this at least makes sense.  A quick search for re-founder brought me to’s definition – “one who refounds” but “refound” has no definition.  Okay, not so helpful but then I stumbled upon linkedin and bingo, someone who has the title refounder, and that’s what I’m talking about.  I may find myself explaining this to people more often than I want, but basically what this means for me is that even though is a 15 year old company, we’re back in start-up mode.  That’s really the most concise way I can think to explain what we’re doing with this “new” company.

We’re taking a good look at our business and our opportunities for growth.  Evaluating the office space market, there are great resources for brokers, landlords and property managers but limited options if you’re an actual tenant looking for space, even fewer options if you are a tenant looking for smaller spaces.   Our goal is to change that and create an effective marketplace for both tenants and landlords/brokers.  We’ve been busy at work over the past year, our small team of 7.  Stay tuned, we’ve got some exciting new stuff that should launch in the early part of 2012.
