About Luke:

Coop is the Founder and CEO of Fixt, a venture capital-backed technology startup (acquired in 2020 by Assurant, AIZ:NYSE) focused on providing on-demand smartphone repair services to large enterprises. As Founder of Fixt, Cooper guided the company to 400% year-over-year growth, raised a $7 million Series A, earned enterprise clients such as Home Depot, New York Police Department, The Carlyle Group, and IBM. In 2020, the Company was purchased for 11X revenue by Assurant, a $10B Fortune 500 leader in mobility protection.

Before moving into entrepreneurship, Cooper started his career as an attorney at DLA Piper and then as In-House Counsel at State Farm. His first entrepreneurial experience was joining CTS, a cybersecurity software startup, as employee No. 1. On a single round of funding of $180,000, Cooper guided CTS to a $60 million exit to CACI within two years.

His diverse trench experience as both a leader and entrepreneur has earned him a place on the TEDCO board of directors and as a trustee of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). In addition to a JD from Syracuse University, he holds an MBA from Babson College and was a scholarship basketball player at Adelphi University.
