Taylor Drew Holshouser is an Associate on the Builders Initiative Investments team. He is focused on evaluating new investments, conducting industry research, and supporting the needs of portfolio companies and fund managers.

Prior to joining Builders, he co-led the Alaska Ocean Cluster, a startup accelerator dedicated to advancing mission-oriented innovations that benefit maritime industries, coastal communities, and ocean ecosystems. He oversaw strategy, recruiting, and compliance and worked directly with entrepreneurs in the program to validate their ideas, connect with customers, build internal capacity, and ultimately scale their business and impact.
