We are flexible and invest across multiple stages.
TCV provides capital to growth-stage technology companies. We make $30M-$400M equity investments across various capital structures.
For more than 27 years, TCV has helped build industry-leading companies by creating long-term relationships with CEOs and founders of businesses that have achieved product-market fit and are ready to scale. We seek out and provide exceptional leaders of technology companies with growth capital, industry expertise, and support in scaling their businesses and executing on their visions. We are experienced investors and board members, who have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs optimize their go-to-market strategies, build out their teams, facilitate international expansions, manage acquisitions, or prepare for an IPO.
Since our inception in 1995, we have raised over $19 billion across eleven growth funds and invested over $16 billion in leading technology companies, including Altiris, Airbnb, Dollar Shave Club, ExactTarget, Expedia, Facebook, Fandango, GoDaddy, Genesys, HomeAway, IQMS, Merkle, Modsy, Netflix, Peloton, Redback Networks, Silver Peak, Sitecore, Splunk, Spotify, Webroot, and Zillow. We have taken 79 companies public; our public listings include IPOs, direct listings, and SPACs. Our M&A exits include 69 strategic sales. We know how to help companies succeed with a wide range of strategies, in up markets and during tough times. In 2022, TCV announced Velocity I, a $460 million fund geared towards expansion-stage investment opportunities.
We recognize that every company is unique, so we match our financing to each company’s specific situation and strategy. We typically invest at inflection points, often expanding our position as other investors exit.
We align with the strategy and goals of the entrepreneurs we partner with and deliver the right balance of industry experience, market expertise, and level-headed judgment, along with trust in their abilities and long-term support of their visions. As the “Switzerland” of growth equity, we are flexible in our financial structures and will match our financing to support the continued growth of our companies. Our equity investments include minority, buyout and public deal constructs.
We are fully engaged investors who help our companies scale their business by providing support in the areas of researching opportunities, accelerating customer acquisition, and recruiting talent. We provide first-name introductions to top innovators in Silicon Valley, New York, Europe and beyond, connecting our companies with leaders whose hard-won knowledge is priceless. Integrity and trust are core to partnerships we create and decisions we make. Entrepreneurs today have more funding options than ever before, but few investors can match our resources, energy and track record of successfully supporting market leaders.
We look to invest in companies and teams at pivotal moments. And we hold our stake over the long term, often expanding our position as other investors exit. At TCV, our goal is to transform companies into the industry leaders that will shape the future.
