they decided to found their own university < is it correct pls explain


I'm confused with this  >> decided to  


decided to found >>  if to is to+inf  >> it has to change like this   [to+find] not [to+found] right ?


 decided to found >> decided +to >> if to is an prep. so it has to change like this [decided to finding]


     or    if you say in this case found is not participle of find  so it means that in this sentence has 2 real verb  . In grammatical it cannot has 2 real verb in the sentence without connector right ?

"To" is an infinitive and not a preposition.
