Hummer Winblad Venture Partners
Hummer Winblad Venture Partners was founded in 1989 as the first venture capital fund to invest exclusively in software companies. Through our history, we?ve had the opportunity to invest in the pioneers and leaders of several generations of software applications, architectures, delivery methods and business models.
We?ve helped entrepreneurs build companies in desktop software, embedded systems, client-server, distributed network computing, internet, and software as a service. Our earliest portfolio companies started shipping software on floppy disks and today we?re investors in pioneering companies in on-demand computing. We?ve seen everything from shrink-wrap licenses to enterprise-wide "big deals" to subscription pricing; from direct sales to highly-leveraged channel strategies.
In other words, because software is all we do, we bring tremendous value to highly talented people who want to build great software companies. We hope our website tells you a lot about us, but please feel free to contact any of us directly.
