To say Larry is a mover and a shaker is an understatement! He is simply the best when it comes to getting people connected, so they can do great things together. As our fierce leader and head coach, he stays active in the community while keeping our team focused on Amplify’s game plan: to be the best at leading, partnering and supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem for Louisville.

He comes to Amplify as a serial entrepreneur and was previously the Director of Startup Ecosystem Development for Louisville through Techstars. Larry has an MBA from the University of Louisville and is the co-founder of TNG Pharmaceuticals, Liberate Medical, Derby City Cut & Sew, and Roth River.

Superpower: Inspiring the right support at the right time for entrepreneurs to be successful.

Something remarkable: giving back. He’s the Board Chair of Venture Connectors, Board Chair of Lemonade Day – Louisville, Advisory Board Member of Canopy, Annual Giving Committee Chair for the University of Louisville Alumni Association Board of Advisors, and makes time to do countless coffee and bourbon meetings with fellow entrepreneurs. 

Something personal: Larry lives in Louisville with his wife, Emma, and kidpreneurs, Myles and Ava and their pup, Buttercup.

We’re lucky to have Larry leading us in our mission to cultivate an inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem for Louisville.
