Here are the finance executives charged in the college-admissions cheating scandal

Manuel A. Henriquez is the cofounder, chairman, and CEO of Hercules Technology Growth Capital, a Palo Alto, California-based venture-debt provider. The company was an early investor in Facebook.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Henriquez has worked in venture capital for more than 30 years. Prior to Hercules, he was a partner at the private-equity fund VantagePoint Venture Partners. He was also the founder of ON Technology, a software company that was backed by investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Apple Computer, and more.

He and his wife, Elizabeth Henriquez, are accused of participating “in the college entrance exam cheating scheme, on four separate occasions, for their two daughters.”

They also “conspired to bribe Gordon Ernst, the head tennis coach at Georgetown University, to designate their older daughter as a tennis recruit in order to facilitate her admission to Georgetown.”

The couple are charged with “conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud,” according to court documents.
