RBJ’s Power 50 Technology

The Rochester Business Journal’s Power List program continues this week with a new list for 2022: our Power 50 Technology.

Ben Jacobs

The list includes individuals who help give Rochester its reputation as a hotbed of innovation and technology.

The people on this list are leading innovative companies, incorporating new technologies into highly complex work, providing expert support to other companies in the community, championing local start-ups and more. They have not only kept their companies moving forward throughout the COVID-19pandemic, in most cases they have accelerated the innovative trajectories their organizations were already on.

As with our previous Power Lists, this one is presented in alphabetical order. And again, rather than tell you about all of these power players’ accomplishments and accolades, we decided to give them a chance to tell you more about themselves through their answers to a few different questions. For anyone who was unable to complete our questionnaire, we put together a small profile.

I welcome any feedback you have at [email protected].
