Elliot Cooper & Coops Kicks

At the age of 13 years old, Brooklyn entrepreneur, Elliot Cooper, founded Coops Kicks, an e-commerce sneaker/streetwear business.

In an effort to reduce pollution from sneaker waste, Elliot partnered with GotSneakers, a sneaker recycling organization. All revenue from the Coops Kicks Sneaker Fundraising Program is pledged to The Ocean Cleanup, a nonprofit engineering environmental organization based in the Netherlands, that develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans and intercept it in rivers before it can reach the ocean.

Elliot also founded the Coops Kicks Sneaker Scholarship as a way to help other students deal with the cost of education. Elliot believes that passion and hustle should determine how far a young entrepreneur can go. Elliot aims to empower other young adults who are passionate about marketing, advertising, and design.
