2013 Power List
Mobile ticketing on the LIRR. Digitally determining public sentiment about a national brand. An online platform that helps non-profits grow. These concepts may seem disparate but they have one thing in common: Mark Fasciano. Canrock Ventures is a Long Island-based early stage venture capital fund that invests in technology companies. Venture capital firms are abundant, but what makes Fasciano and his partners unique is their dedication to mining and attracting talent right here on LI. From nabbing incubator companies from Stony Brook University to providing startups a place to work at Thought Box, a collaborative incubator space in Hicksville, Fasciano is helping LI reinvent itself for the future.
