Founded in 1995, TCV is one of the largest private equity and venture capital 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. We are active, long-term investors who stay involved with, and continue to invest in, our portfolio companies through their IPOs and beyond. With $7.7 billion under management, 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.
TCV has had a strong focus on the consumer internet since its founding with investments including Netflix, Expedia, CNET, TheStreet.com, eHarmony, Zillow, Nextag, iVillage, Real Networks, Fandango, TechTarget, Whitepages.com, adKnowledge, Orbitz, CheapTickets, and others.
