The Tech Power Players 50 recognizes leaders in software, cybersecurity, AI and robotics, climate tech, health tech, crypto, and beyond. The list examines their career impact on technology and business, taking into account their tech-specific contributions and innovations that have kept the sector vibrant in a challenging economic climate. This is the third consecutive year that Will Ahmed has been honored and the first year Emily Capodilupo was recognized in this extraordinary list of leaders.

"I'm honored to be recognized by The Boston Globe again on this annual list," said Will Ahmed, Founder and CEO of WHOOP. "WHOOP is proud to be based in Boston which is home to so many pivotal research and medical centers and a dynamic start-up ecosystem. It's also great to be joined this year by Emily Capodilupo, one of our earliest team members and our SVP of Research, Algorithms, and Data. WHOOP would not be where it is today without her."

"It is important to recognize the leaders of our innovation economy who are developing technologies that are transforming our world," said Linda Henry, CEO of Boston Globe Media. "The Globe is committed to telling the story of this remarkable cmmunity and its incredible impact on our region and beyond through our everyday reporting and by recognizing the pioneers who are driving this innovation with this list."



The Globe convened local leaders in business and technology to serve as advisors alongside the Globe's newsroom, including Dave Balter, Larry Bohn, Paul English, Yasmin Cruz Ferrine, Aisha Francis, Yvonne Hao, Linda Henry, Scott Kirsner, Youngme Moon, Eric Paley, and Katie Rae. The committee and the Globe's newsroom submitted over 200 nominations and scored candidates based on their business impact - value created, revenue, number of jobs - and their broader influence in the tech community - in terms of ideas, reputation, and mentorship. A few committee members were included on the list; these decisions were made by Globe staff alone.

"Boston is a leader in tech and innovation, and we're seeing a lot of opportunity even in a challenging economy," said Greg Huang, the Globe's Business and Tech editor. "In our third year, we wanted the Power Players list to both stand alone and reflect broader trends in the industry, including the surging interest in fields like AI and climate tech."


"I am truly honored to be recognized among New England's Tech Power Players alongside Will. This distinction reflects our collective effort at WHOOP to pioneer transformative technologies that enhance personal health and fitness," said Emily Capodilupo, Senior Vice President of Research, Algorithms, and Data at WHOOP. "It's a privilege to contribute to the dynamic innovation landscape that thrives here in Boston."
