Brendan Iribe, the co-founder and former CEO of Oculus announced that he is leaving Facebook. The move comes after Facebook canceled Oculus’ PC-powered “Rift 2” VR headset in favor of the all-in-one headsets that don’t require a connection to an external computer. A source close to the matter tells TechCrunch that Iribe, who led the development of the “Rift 2”, and Facebook’s executive team had “fundamentally different views on the future of Oculus that grew deeper over time,” and Iribe wasn’t interested in a “race to the bottom” in terms of performance.
Iribe’s exit comes at a time when a number of high-profile founders in Facebook’s acquisition portfolio are leaving the company. Less than a month ago, Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced their plans to leave the company, partially as a result of mountain tensions. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum also left Facebook earlier this year due to disagreements over data privacy and encryption.

“Team dynamics are central to the success or failure of a startup. For startup founders, their company is their life: business successes are an emotional high and when the company is in trouble, that is all the founders think about. This is why the team at an early stage startup is much more than just a set of employees.” - Forbes // What Makes Great Startup Teams, And How To Find It // S.Matveeva
