About us

TCV is a growing collective of firms which are dedicated to fostering the world’s fastest growth technology ecosystems.

Founded by George Johnston, TCV acknowledges real global impact cannot be created by one company or team alone.

In little under 3 years, we have developed a team of 35+ talented individuals who’s worked with over 30 cities, 200+ high growth scale ups, 300+ c-level industry executives and delivered many successful private and public sector partnerships.

  TCV is focused on two key goals.

Goal 1

To help our cities sit at the heart of technology ecosystems

Goal 2

To build and scale solutions inclusively and collaboratively

Our ecosystem benefits from the collective talent, resources and opportunities of TCV when working with any of our companies.
