Mark Fasciano, Canrock Ventures Managing Director

If you have recently heard of or been intrigued by a Long Island-based technology firm, chances are Mark Fasciano has something to do with it. Already a well-known and established figure in the tech world as the founder of FatWire Software in 1996—which he later sold—Fasciano has since moved into the world of venture capital. As the Island tries to reinvent itself in the new economy, Fasciano is increasingly sought after to become the face of Long Island’s future and given his winning history it’s probably not a bad bet. Aside from managing Canrock Ventures, an early stage tech venture fund, Fasciano was the impetus behind Karma 411, an online fundraising resource, and co-founder of General Sentiment, a company that might just be the “next big thing.”
