Full bio

Peter Wagner is a founding partner of Wing. He has led investments in dozens of early-stage companies, more than 30 of which have gone on to complete IPOs or successful acquisitions. These companies include Snowflake, Aporeto, BlueJeans Network, Cumulus Networks, Habu, Nimble Storage, Fusion-io, Redback Networks, Riverbed, Arrowpoint Communications, Infinera, Peribit, Topspin, Omneon, and Opower, to name a few.

Peter partners with founders building the AI-first technology stack for business, focusing on early-stage investing and long-term company building. He sees data, AI and the increasingly autonomous applications built on these technologies as engines of empowerment, helping people do their best work.

“I don’t believe humans will be replaced by AI. But humans working with AI will replace humans working without it.”

 Before founding Wing, Peter helped lead Accel Partners for 15 years as managing partner. Prior to joining Accel, Peter was a product line manager at Silicon Graphics, responsible for several generations of digital media and graphics workstation products. Peter previously worked with McKinsey and Company, and began his career as a physicist working in nuclear fusion research and aerospace.

Peter holds an AB in physics from Harvard College, summa cum laude, and an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar.
