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 their history, they've had the opportunity to invest in the pioneers and leaders of several generations of software applications, architectures, delivery methods and business models.
Hummer Winblad has helped entrepreneurs build companies in desktop software, embedded systems, client-server, distributed network computing, internet, and software as a service. Their earliest portfolio companies started shipping software on floppy disks and today we're investors in pioneering companies in on-demand computing. Hummer Winblad Venture Partners has seen everything from shrink-wrap licenses to enterprise-wide "big deals" to subscription pricing; from direct sales to highly-leveraged channel strategies.
