Bloomberg, Cornell Tech, & Tech:NYC invite you to join us for the latest installment of the Cornell Tech @ Bloomberg Speaker Series, featuring Everett Cook, Co-founder & CEO of Rho, in conversation with Scarlet Fu of Bloomberg TV & Bloomberg Quicktake.
Cook had a slightly out-of-the-ordinary journey compared to a traditional Silicon Valley founder. Before launching Rho in 2018 with his co-founder, Alex Wheldon, he spent a decade on Wall Street as a macro analyst & hedge fund trader, a profession where success is equal parts foresight around market trends & comfort moving left when others move right.
From Day 1, Rho has operated with the mission to make finance frictionless for organizations. However, Cook's vantage point as a former investor has been instrumental in guiding the company's evolution from its early days as an online banking service platform to the comprehensive finance platform thousands of American middle-market businesses use today to automate payables, expenses, treasury, banking services, accounting, & more.
With fresh learnings from integrating generative AI to power the Rho platform's AP capabilities & managing recent deals with Capital & Creative Juice, Rho is finding new ways to help finance teams do more of what they love & automate away what they don't.
We hope you'll join us for this conversation, in which Cook will discuss his early start as an entrepreneur, what his experience in markets taught him about building a successful tech company, Rho's growth journey, & why he feels NYC is the best place in the world to start & scale a technology company.
