Larry Cook

Head of Global Finance & Operations

Being raised in the Midwest, I have witnessed firsthand the impact of economic inequality on communities. The work we do at Flourish is a testament to changing that scenario.

As Head of Global Finance & Operations, Larry directs Flourish Ventures’ investment process, finance, portfolio management, technology, and facilities. Since the launch of the firm’s evergreen fund in 2019, he has built Flourish’s finance and operations structure from the ground up, recruiting a world-class team and supporting a growing portfolio of more than 70 companies.

Larry’s vision for a digital-first finance infrastructure enabled the Flourish team and its portfolio companies across six continents to seamlessly rise to new challenges in the COVID-19 environment. Under his leadership, operations became the nucleus of Flourish’s global network uniquely positioning the company to meet unprecedented economic turbulence, while maintaining the highest standards of compliance.

Larry brings a deep background in technology, operations, and venture capital to Flourish. Previously, he managed equity investments and M&A strategy for Intel Capital. As an investment advisor and board member, Larry has worked with numerous portfolio companies spanning multiple stages, verticals, and business models. He has an MBA degree from Case Western Reserve University.
