About

I’m Johnson Cook.

First things first… A dad of 3 delicious kiddos, husband of 12 years, addicted but slow runner, general aviation pilot, occasional swimmer, medium-to-poor golfer, very amateur musician (piano), and seeker of entrepreneurial energy. I love to be around it. I love to take it in, and I love to share it.  I love to fix, build, and operate stuff using my hands (probably related to growing up on a farm).

After that… I’m an investor in awesome tech startups via Atlanta Ventures. I give elbow grease to our investments and programs, including the Atlanta Ventures Accelerator. I’m far too active in the Atlanta startup community, including a challenging and exhilarating responsibility building the awesome Atlanta Tech Village.

Previously the Founder of Quench Network (2012), Peach New Media (2009), and Impact Media Solutions (2001).   Do the math, I started when I was 6′ish.

I’m a Yellow Jacket.

I believe that startups (both for-profit and non-profit) are a key to a healthy, happy society, full of satisfied people. I believe in the power of organized, structured associations and societies to help people find connections with each other and enable lifelong learning in any field.

Also, I really encourage you to check out my reading list. If you read the first four, you will get to know me very well.  You may also want to see my Personal Creed and my Personal Core Values.

I hope you’ll find this blog interesting occasionally, helpful in some way, perhaps inspiring.   I practice gumption and hope you will too.
