Cooper is an Analyst at RRE, where he focuses primarily on the Fintech, connected car, and consumer/ retail spaces. Prior to joining RRE, he was part of the founding team of Shake, a mobile contracts app funded by RRE. He is also the founder of WatchesOut.com, a website devoted to vintage and custom wristwatches.

Cooper was a Class of 1960 Scholar and early Phi Beta Kappa inductee at Williams College, where he double majored in English and History with a concentration in Leadership Studies. While at Williams, Cooper spent his time writing about early American History (he claims to have won some awards) co-founding and managing a laundry business, and taking advantage of all the Berkshires had to offer. Outside of the office, Cooper can be found cycling in Central Park, stubbornly proclaiming the merits of vinyl records, and maintaining his status as VC’s most passionate Luddite.
