Iman Cooper

Creative Strategist. Builder of People. Connector to Resources.

Iman Cooper is passionate about bringing out the best in people, developing leaders, and building strong teams.

About Me

Entrepreneur. Creator. Storyteller.


Visionary Leader

I am endlessly curious about people, their stories, and new places. Always inspired by small ideas that create a big impact. The Hult Prize sharpened my strategic insight, which allows me to see problems as opportunities and I help you realize the same. My areas of expertise include training and facilitation around entrepreneurship and pitching, product-market fit, program design, and strategy to help you grow and scale your organization to the next level. 


I am passionate about helping founders and leaders build strong teams, through leadership development that helps leaders continually grow into the best version of themselves. I empower people to discover, sharpen, and fully utilize their strengths.

I believe that people matter and everyone has a role to play; it's only a matter of finding where each person best fits. Excellence is inevitable when you work around your natural gifts and strengths. My life philosophy is that every experience has a purpose and contributes to who you are and what you are called to do. Compassion and vision are my secret sauce to leadership.


My interest is developing empowered leaders who are confident in who they are; who are then able to raise up other leaders. Leaders secure in their identity are better positioned to build strong teams who relentlessly and passionately pursue the common vision, to make it become a reality. I believe problems often aren't  just problems, but simply opportunities waiting to be realized.
