Successful Serial Entrepreneur and Master Marketer
A Visionary Investor and Successful Serial Entrepreneur, Mr. Sam Cooper develops innovative,

Mr. Cooper currently has Investments and Ownership and/or Major Marketing Partnerships in more than two dozen Companies.
Mr. Cooper created this new Financial System for the Media Industry which is projected to generate several Billion Dollars Annually of new Non-Traditional Income for the Media Industry. Mr. Cooper uses Limited Partnership Units to acquire these Cash Convertible Assets, from an Industry that has Annual Revenue of over $500 Billion per year globally, with an annual $100B per year pool of unused and unsold commodity assets, that perish on a daily basis without producing value. He has created a financial system that converts this pool of unsold media assets into investment capital that eventually yields significant, long-term returns on what would otherwise be “non-performing” assets with unrealized potential. Then he Invests these Assets into Public and/or Private Companies to deliver additional Sales and Profits into the Portfolio Company and/or to be used as Media Asset Collateral for additional working Capital.
During his 20s, Mr. Cooper was the Founder and Producer of the highly successful Positive Thinking Rallies that swept the country throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

To promote his Positive Thinking Rallies, Mr. Cooper produced a unique 30-minute television documentary, which included an information hot line, that explained the eight-hour event.

Mr. Cooper coordinated the first national cellular marketing system in the early 1980s when the cellular industry was in its infancy. Over 90% of the 305 SMSA Cellular licenses, opposite the Bell Operating License, in 305 markets was acquired thru his marketing. He rolled out the Cellular Licensing program, with Satellite Systems Engineering of Washington, DC that generated $44 M in house which produced over 100,000 responses at $5,000.00 each, from seven weeks of his Mass Media Marketing, including an Infomercial he produced featuring Mike Douglas.
He created and is launching in 2016, the Cruise Marketing Systems, Inc. that accumulates Prepaid Cruises in exchange for Marine Diesel at a Three to One Multiple. In this $35 B Annual Industry, Fuel is the Cruise Industries' second highest expense item, and for every $100M of Fuel his system delivers to this industry, that $100M will be taken off their expense column and goes directly to their bottom line, and every $100 M on their bottom line puts over $1 B additional New Market Cap, on their Public Corp Values. This Prepaid Cruise Inventory, acquired at 1/3 the Fuel Cost in $100M increments will produce over 100% profit after all expenses, on each rollover, as he markets the Cruise Inventory online using Affiliate Marketing and Cruise Fan Clubs and Social Network Sites that have over 1.5 B members Plus thru Traditional Media.
