Founders Talk: Philip Holt

Lessons learned on the front lines of a venture backed startup

Philip is the co-founder & CEO of SPLYT, a venture-backed advanced data platform. He is also co-founder of Canvs, a non profit opening 17,000 square feet of coworking space in the Exchange Building at Church Street Station. He serves on several local boards, including Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, the College of Engineering and Computer Science at UCF, Orlando IX, the Florida High Tech Corridor Council, and is currently vice chair of Project DTO, a task force commissioned by the Mayor of Orlando to develop a long term roadmap for downtown Orlando.

Every week Starter Studio will be holding Founder Talks, where local figures come to share the start of their own startup. Feel free to join us to learn more about Starter Studio and its companies, meet fellow Starters, or just for a little inspiration.

    I thought his response for "When do you launch your product?" was spot on. Here's a blog post that expands on how he responded:

    Philip had great insight. He was very candid and had a lot of valuable experience to share. Great story!

    Very informative and fast paced. A key take away for me was in the Q &A period about the changing landscape for "A" round funding to "top-lines" of $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 for customer validation.

    Additionally, I was surprised that the implication of the cumulative preferred was not clear to him. I appreciated his candor. A great guy.
