About.

NO MUD. NO MAGIC.

Most people think success is about hustle and creativity. That’s part of it, but not the part that counts. Outlearning the competition, building the right product, and falling in love with the problem are the things that do. In the mud of the startup journey lies the magic of something great.

Luke Cooper is a serial entrepreneur and the Founder & CEO of Fixt, an on-demand technology company focused on enterprise tech support, servicing Fortune 500 clients all over the U.S.  The company has been featured in Forbes MagazineAmerican Airlines magazine, and USA Today and has raised nearly $4 million in venture funding from Silicon Valley, New York, and Baltimore investment firms. He started his career as a lawyer at DLA Piper and State Farm before becoming the Founder & CEO of Fixt — one of the fastest growing tech companies in the country. In 2007, Luke helped build and sell his first tech company CTS, for $60M to multi-billion-dollar defense contractor CACI and built his first company, a solar powered microwave business at age 12.

Luke’s story is one of triumph over tragedy. He articulates in compelling form his story as a 12 year old boy coming to adolescence in a Bridgeport, CT housing project in the 1980’s. After attending Adelphi University on a basketball scholarship, Luke earned his Juris Doctor from Syracuse University (2001) and his MBA in Finance from Babson College (2011). Luke coaches dozens of startups and has served in numerous non-profit advisory positions and has received many honors and awards including 2017 Light City Pitch Competition, the 2014 Baltimore Business Journal “40 Under 40”, 2013 Baltimore Business Journal “Rising Star Award (Under 40)” and was the New England Patriots’ Myra Kraft MVP Nominee (2013).
