Todd Cooper / Co-Founder of NuArca Labs
Todd Cooper is not your typical startup founder. He has a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and a Master of Fine Arts in writing literature. He’s also a lifelong competitive sailor. So, naturally, he embarked on a 20+ year career leading and managing high growth fintech businesses in regulatory finance and risk management before co-founding his startup, NuArca Labs, which builds white label NFT platforms for athletes, artists, teams, and leagues aimed at everyday fans.
After securing seed round funding, Todd, as company CEO, doubled NuArca Labs’ development team and created platforms for rights holders worldwide, including Major League Rugby and Rugby League World Cup, Baseball Generations, Todd English’s Pepper Club 21, HotNewHipHop, and Artists for Ukraine. His success has also lured execs from the NFL and San Antonio Spurs to the NuArca Labs Board of Directors.
“We founded NuArca in 2016 with the fundamental concept that we could take the hard-earned know-how of delivering essential risk management and compliance systems for tier-1 global banks and marry it with the interrelated technologies of NFTs, blockchain, and crypto and make great things happen. It took a lot of hard work, but we have proven this to be possible.”
