MedTech Board Member, Theresa Mazzullo, was recently named on the inaugural New York Tech Power 50 list by City & State NY, which ranked the most influential and accomplished "power players" across the State. She is among names like: Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures, Tim Armstrong of Tech:NYC, Jenny Fielding of Techstars, and many other "power players." 

Read the entry on the Top 50 list below:


Industry insiders will tell you that New York has always been a hub for technological innovation and enterprise, but a string of recent events – a planned Amazon office complex in Queens, Google’s $1 billion expansion in Manhattan, new regulations on the ride-hailing industry – have turned heads from the West Coast to the East Coast, making this the perfect time to release City & State’s first Tech Power 50 list.

Power is a hard thing to define in any field, but being a key player in the tech world is to have the other foot in any number of other worlds – whether that’s finance, health, security or design. Perhaps you coined a pithy expression that is now driving the national debate over maintaining an open internet. Maybe you’re tackling the challenge of directing public policy for New York’s most visible startups. You might be drawing from a wealth of experience to take on the even tougher challenge of correcting gender and race inequities in tech.

We reached out to insiders and experts to compile this list, ranking each person based on their achievements, their business savvy, their interplay with state and federal government, and their sway with powerful politicians. Since we cover elected officials on a day-to-day basis, we limited this list to those who are not strictly in government but instead influence it from the outside.

The next time you hear New York called a tech hub, you’ll know the key power players behind its successes.

29. Theresa Mazzullo, CEO, Excell Partners

When Gov. Andrew Cuomo dedicated $25 million to spur startup development in the Finger Lakes region last fall, he needed someone to channel that money. Enter Theresa Mazzullo, who has led Rochester-based venture capital and private equity firm Excell Partners for 13 years. Mazzullo, a seasoned executive with 30 years of experience in business and finance, will oversee investments of up to $1.5 million from the fund to build a fleet of upstate startups in key high-tech industries.
