The Xfund-Philo relationship is a special one because it dates to the earliest days of both companies: Philo was the first company that Xfund supported, and Xfund was Philo’s first investor and has participated in every funding round. Launched by co-founders Tuan Ho and Nick Krasney at Harvard, Philo is the world’s first social television company.
Currently at the helm of Philo is CEO Andrew McCollum. For years, before he became CEO in 2014, he mentored and advised Philo’s co-founders and served on the company’s board. Andrew has also served as Entrepreneur in Residence at New Enterprise Associates (NEA). He is an active early-stage angel investor and one of the five original co-founders of Facebook.
