About Trammell Venture Partners
Founded in 2016 by partners Christopher Calicott and Dustin Trammell, Trammell Venture Partners (TVP) is an Austin-based venture capital firm focused on investing in seed- and early-stage startups building on the Bitcoin protocol stack.

Our investment style is high-conviction and high-concentration in markets we feel exhibit very large, asymmetrical return potential.
