Lawrence Calcano is the chairman and CEO of iCapital. He began advising and working with iCapital shortly after its 2013 founding, leading key strategic and business development initiatives before joining full time as CEO in early 2014. Since then, he has led the rapid growth both organic and through acquisition of iCapital, building it into a leading global fintech company.
The majority of Lawrence's career is focused on the meeting point of finance and technology. At Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 17 years, he was a partner and managing director, most recently serving as the cohead of the Global Technology Banking Group, which is part of the Investment Banking division, focusing on all aspects of technology, including the internet and e-commerce, software services, and hardware. He also has worked as director of various digital and e-commerce businesses, as well as a series of acquisition vehicles.
Outside of technology, Lawrence's other passion is mental health and wellbeing. And this has led him to serve as a director of Vibrant Emotional Health, formerly the Mental Health Association of New York, for 10 years. Lawrence received his BA from the College of the Holy Cross and graduated from the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College as a Tuck scholar. He was named Forbes Midas List of the most influential people in venture capital in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
