Is the owner and founder of a corporation one in the same?

No. A founder, found the company. (or started it.) This would never change. An owner, owns the company. A founder could be an owner if he started the company with his own money. If the founder started the company with someone elses money he is not the owner. If the company is sold to a new owner. The new owner would not become the founder. That is unless you sold it to the person that was already the founder.
