HOLT Ventures is the venture capital arm of HOLT CAT, the largest Caterpillar dealer in the United States located in San Antonio, Texas. We invest in entrepreneurs optimizing the way we do business.

Legacy Venture Investing
for Today's Bold Ideas

Our Mission

Through our investments, we aim to optimize the service, manufacturing, rental and distribution businesses for the future while simultaneously adapting to evolving customer demands.

We understand the needs of today’s entrepreneurs because we’re entrepreneurs, too.

The Holt family has a long legacy of entrepreneurial innovation in the industrial business space, dating back to the early 1900’s when Benjamin Holt invented the track-type tractor, later named Caterpillar.

These breakthrough innovations revolutionized American enterprise by mechanizing the defense, farming, mining, and construction industries.

We need to keep innovating to thrive.

We know that we have to create better solutions today to build a better business tomorrow.

The industries we serve and our own dealership are long overdue for disruption. This is why HOLT Ventures was created.

It's why we need you to help create the new technologies and tools to get us there.

We can equip you with a lot more than money.

We’re entrepreneur-friendly and we welcome fresh thinking and new ideas.

We invest in early stage companies and will pilot new technologies within our own dealership to fine-tune and optimize them. The result is a partnership that can help you build and scale your business.

We are prepared for the future with a new generation of leaders.

“We are very excited to continue our family’s legacy, as we further operations in our hometown of San Antonio and expand in other major markets across Texas,” said Peter J. Holt, HOLT CAT CEO. “But our growth is not just in terms of geography. We are always looking at opportunities to bring new, dynamic services to our customers and the industry we serve.”

“The greatest thing we have gleaned from our father and grandfather, is employees and customers matter most,” said Corinna Holt Richter, HOLT CAT President. “Our Values-Based Leadership principles and corporate mission clearly outline the importance of providing a safe and fulfilling work environment for our employees and legendary customer service for our customers. These core values will continue to drive our success.

Our grandfather, B.D. Holt said it best when he always reminded us:" "The best is yet to come."
