Shawn Fanning is the founder and chief strategy officer of SNOCAP. Since the company's inception in 2002, Fanning has driven SNOCAP's mission to dramatically improve the consumer digital music experience and help grow the overall digital music market.

Fanning sparked the file-sharing phenomenon with the creation of Napster in 1999 while a freshman at Northeastern University. He envisioned an easier, more practical way for people to share their personal music collections and find like-minded music fans online, which led to one of the fastest growing applications in internet history. He has graced the covers of Time, Fortune, and BusinessWeek magazines.

Fanning, 24 and originally from the Cape Cod town of Harwich, Massachusetts, now resides in San Francisco, CA.
