About Courtney "Coko"

My background and expertise is music and entertainment. I worked for the biggest music company in the world (Sony) for 9 years while also running my first startup called Soundtrack Entertainment. Soundtrack is a company focused on live events, showcases, concerts and more. From these events alone I've been featured in Billboard's 30 under 30 and I won Nashville's 40 under 40 on two occasions. Soundtrack recently led me to create another startup in the tech industry called MILK. Milk is a mobile application that rewards you whenever you refrain from using your phone in places or situations where you shouldn't such as: movie theaters, live venues, restaurants, classrooms, cars and more. Milk was recently selected by Code2040 and Google for Entrepreneurs Program called: Entrepreneur in Residence. Now that Milk is getting a lot of attention, it is time to put top notch team together. I'm currently seeking a co-founder preferably on the developer/programmer side, but I'm also not opposed to big data expert or those who have a huge background in mobile marketing, digital marketing, market intelligence or machine learning.
