    Default helped found.

    He's won Oscars, raced cars, been on President Richard Nixon's enemies list, helped found the famed Actor's Studio and established a food company to fund charities.

    Does it grammatical acceptble " he has helped found " because there are two particples in the sentence ?

    I know I can say " He has been found alive "

    Thank you

    found means, to start or establish (an organization, institution, city, etc), often with a provision for future funding.
