Founded in 1995, TCV is one of the largest growth equity firms focused solely on information technology companies. We are flexible in providing capital in a manner that addresses the goals of the management and shareholders of the companies in which we invest. We take both minority and majority positions and provide capital for growth, shareholder liquidity, acquisitions, buyouts, and recapitalizations.

With $7.7 billion raised since inception, we have the ability to invest significant amounts of capital ranging from $20 million to over $200 million. For larger transactions, we may leverage our large base of limited partners, many of whom have the ability to make sizeable co-investments alongside TCV.
