Silicon Beat

Thanks to Matt over at Silicon Beat for recently profiling my blog. Silicon Beat is part of my daily routine and the site and reporting are consistenly good sources for the latest in the technology and start-up world.

Matt's reference to Hummer Winblad suggests that the firm has been quiet of late. It is worth noting that Hummer Winblad has been an active and successful software investor through three major technology cycles: PC, client/server, and the Internet era. The firm's track record of successful investments includes Arbor Software, Net Dynamics (sold to Sun), Adforce (sold to CMGI), Powersoft (merged with Sybase), Scopus (sold to SEBL), and Wind River.

In the past 18 months, the firm led investments in 14 companies including Akimbi, Palamida, Scalent Systems, Cittio, and ActiveGrid. Active portfolio companies include Omniture, Voltage Security, and Employease.

Thanks again to Matt for the post and to the entrepreneurs who read Silicon Beat, please be in touch:)
