Morino Photo Mario Morino's career spans some 30 years as a business leader, social entrepreneur, and authority on information technology. Currently, he is Chairman of the Morino Institute, a nonprofit organization he founded in 1994 to help people and communities find ways to use the Internet to achieve positive economic and social change. Key activities of the Institute include youth development initiatives that provide enriched learning opportunities through the Internet to children in low-income communities; and the Institute's own Netpreneur Program, which supports and nurtures the growing community of the Greater Washington DC's digital age entrepreneurs.

Morino is also Founder and Chairman of the Potomac KnowledgeWay Project, an initiative to prepare and educate the Greater Washington region to be competitive in the information and communications industries in the 21st century.

Morino is best known for his contributions in the area of Information Technology . In 1973, he co-founded Morino Associates as one of the early computer software firms. Morino Associates merged with another firm to create Legent Corporation in 1989, which grew to be one of 10 largest software firms in the world. Morino retired from Legent in 1992, and in 1995, Legent was acquired by Computer Associates in one of the then largest transactions in the computer software and services industry.

He serves as a Special Advisor to General Atlantic Partners, one of the premier private investment firms in information technology and is a Trustee at Case Western Reserve University. Morino sits on a number of Advisory boards and commissions that reflect his interests in youth development, social entrepreneurship and philanthropy. These boards include the National Commission on Entrepreneurship, New Economy Task Force, Community Technology Centers Network (CTCNet), Wanted: Solutions for America Advisory Councils - Pew Partnership for Civic Change, and the Advisory Committee for the National Initiative to Promote the Growth of Philanthropy.

He holds a B.B.S. degree from Case Western Reserve University.
