About the Episode

The what's what...

In just a moment, you’ll meet Cooper Jones — Co-Founder of RahRah, a Community Engagement System that provides a simple solution to give students the inclusive and supportive experience they need to thrive while on campus.

When Cooper was 5 years old, he came back from Sunday school one afternoon and proclaimed to his parents that he wanted to be a preacher and a motocross driver.  

And while these dreams shifted a bit as he grew up, he does have a passion for community building and Iron Man racing — so, hey, there’s some consistency here! 

After studying finance at Oklahoma State, Cooper went to work in consulting at Accenture.  And it was there that he was placed on a project serving a higher education client.  

Working with this university opened Cooper’s eyes to the incredible challenges that today’s institutions face…and before too long,  ideas for how he might build technology to help address these challenges began to percolate. 

Tune in to hear the story behind how and why Cooper started RahRah.
