SAN FRANCISCO, April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FounderPartners, a closely-held partnership which builds, invests in and advises on exits of technology companies, announced today that Rob Wiley joined as a partner bringing decades of experience to help clients and portfolio companies plan and navigate successful exits.

"Rob's deep experience working with CEOs and corporate development teams is a great addition to FounderPartners," said Brian Flynn, co-founder and managing partner of FounderPartners.  "His track record of closing transactions and developing strategic partnerships will create significant value for both our clients and portfolio companies."

Wiley, who most recently led the product and marketing teams at Formstack, a no-code workplace productivity platform, will focus on partneringwith founders and CEOs of both bootstrapped and venture-backed technology companies to respond to interest from strategic acquirers and to build partnerships with leading technology companies.
