Learn More About HOLT Ventures


The Holt family has a long legacy of innovation in the industrial business space, dating back to the early 1900’s when Benjamin Holt invented the track-type tractor, which was later named the Caterpillar. Today, the Holt family works alongside Caterpillar Inc. to deliver market-leading solutions through their heavy equipment dealership, HOLT CAT®, which is the largest Cat® tractor and engine dealer in the United States. Holt Ventures will strive to continue the legacy of innovation by investing in technologies and bright minds that are focused on solving challenges in our business.


Holt Ventures is built upon the Values Based Leadership culture that supports HOLT CAT and has been adopted by many other organizations, including the five time NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs. The Holt family credits their long-term success to this leadership model, which focuses on managing by values and creating a culture of success built upon ethical, innovative and industry-leading business practices.
