What are specific examples of companies that have done exceptional jobs of developing talent from within?

@Pete Flint in the essay, “4 Signs You’re Building A World-Class Team”,  you mentioned that it’s important to provide new managers with guidance, workshops, etc? What companies do this well and are any of them pre-series b or c?

If you look at the executive leadership pages of all the top technology companies from Google to Facebook to Amazon to Netflix as well as the newer companies like Stripe, Airbnb, etc,. you see employees that have had years if not more than a decade of experience at the companies since the early days. The narrative of a lone visionary founder is fiction. Talented teams build great companies and those teams are given a lot of help and support to be successful. Developing the team from within is not just best practice, it’s a necessary ingredient of success.
