Title: Founder & CEO
Organization: RX Coffee
Conor is the founder and CEO of Rx Coffee which was born out of a love for fitness, adventure, and spectacular coffee. Rx Coffee is single origin specialty coffee, carefully selected from top lots, and sustainably sourced. Each roast has been perfected by a master roaster and roasted to bring out the most flavors in the beans. Rx Coffee provides the highest quality fresh roasted coffees delivered straight to the door to direct to consumers, wholesale, or to businesses.

He has volunteered with Chapman Partnership homeless assistance, where he designed a program with fellow MBA students to teach people financial literacy skills; Best Buddies International; and United Cerebral Palsy, to name just a few. The last two are especially personal to Flynn, who has a cousin with Down syndrome and another with cerebral palsy.
Flynn has been a member of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce since 2014, and says that “has deepened my relationships with FIU business school contacts,” as well as the larger community. He helps chair customer care for the Chamber, and has served as chair of the Chamber’s South Florida Good to Great Awards; this is his third year on the board of directors and fourth on board of governors. Flynn is among only a few under age 40 in the organization’s 110-year history to be elected to the boards.
Conor continues to volunteer for The Education Fund, which supports innovation in public education; and The Warrior Focus Foundation which seeks to place at-risk youths into health and fitness programs.
Learning is a big part of what drives Flynn. His mother is a retired teacher, his father a research psychologist and director at Texas Christian University’s Institute of Behavioral Research. “I’m passionate about education,” he said. “The key to growing is learning.”
Flynn urges aspiring, next-generation business leaders not to dwell on past accomplishments or mistakes. Instead, “try to improve every day by consistently challenging yourself – run a marathon, get a graduate degree, and conquer your fear of public speaking.” (Flynn does stand-up comedy, CrossFit, and has survived mixed martial arts training with UFC fighters.”)
