Overview: 
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 cloud 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 to download driven inside sales.
