A serial entrepreneur and Philadelphia native, Cosmo DeNicola owns and operates Cosmo DeNicola Companies, an ever-growing portfolio of businesses ranging from sports, entertainment, healthcare, and technology.  His entrepreneurial success is often attributed to his accelerator mentality and competitive nature.

As a 35-year technology industry veteran, Cosmo has founded and led several national companies (both private and public) to market-leading positions. Most notably, Cosmo co-founded enterprise mobility provider of wireless/RFID technology, InfoLogix Inc., and helped to take the company public in 2006. It was sold to Stanley Black & Decker in 2011. That same year, Cosmo co-founded international SAP services company, LogiStar Solutions, which he sold to Ernst & Young in the spring of 2014.  Cosmo’s current portfolio includes Futura Mobility, an enterprise mobility company that has grown to support over 300,000 users throughout the enterprise and healthcare space. Today, Futura is present in 1 of every 3 US hospitals.

Through his passion for competition and his fearless pursuit to win, Cosmo has become involved in an array of industries. One of his biggest passions; however, is within the world of sports and entertainment.  Since joining the Philadelphia Soul ownership group in 2010, Cosmo has become dynamically involved in the league. Currently, Cosmo holds an active board position with the AFL, and is also a part of the Chinese American Football League (CAFL) pioneer group. In 2011, he launched MKS&D, a Hollywood talent management firm that manages actors in film, television and theatre. Cosmo is also an advisory board member of the Greater Philadelphia Film office.

In the fall of 2014, Cosmo announced a new partnership with iconic sports agent, Leigh Steinberg (the real-life Jerry MaGuire), and his sports agency, Steinberg Sports & Entertainment (SS&E).  Through his business experience and industry connections, Cosmo will help to drive the agency's client marketing services –merging the world of sports, media, entertainment, branding and cause-related marketing,

Amidst his success, Cosmo makes it a priority to dedicate his time in giving back to both his local and global community. Cosmo serves on the board of the Humpty Dumpty Institute (HDI), a prestigious, non-profit organization comprised of innovative, successful entrepreneurs who work in tandem with the United Nations to implement large-scale humanitarian projects for under-developed countries.  Currently, Cosmo is an active participant in HDI’s Cultural Exchange Program where he leverages his relationships within sports and entertainment to help raise global awareness on HDI’s initiatives.

Cosmo’s most recent humanitarian efforts are with his new partner, Leigh Steinberg. In fall of 2014, the pair worked in tandem to develop the Steinberg DeNicola Humanitarian Award, an award designed to commemorate members of the NFL community for their humanitarian efforts. Inaugural recipients Robert “Woody” Johnson (owner of the New York Jets), Dennis Hickey (general manager of the Miami Dolphins), and Jeff Fisher (head coach of the St. Louis Rams), received the award in January 2015 during the 28th Annual Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party.

Cosmo is a Philadelphia native and Temple University graduate.  He resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia with his wife, Janet, and he has two adult children, Michael and Morgan.
