10 Most Powerful NY Tech Titans

Perry Chen, Charles Adler, Yancey Strickler (Kickstarter)

New York-based Kickstarter is a popular site for crowdfunding, drawing together a pool of money from an online community. The site has raised money for everything from smartwatches to film production, helping entrepreneurs raise enough capital to achieve their goals.

Kickstarter was launched in 2009 by Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler and Charles Adler. Unlike the users on its website, Kickstarter raised money from established venture capitalists like Thrive Capital and Union Square Ventures.

Steve Hafner, Paul English (Kayak)

Steve Hafner and Paul English founded popular travel website, Kayak.com in 2004. The Connecticut-based website achieved an IPO in July 2012, a rarity for tech companies in the tri-state region.

But by late 2012, Kayak was acquired by Priceline.com (PCLN) for $1.8 billion. Hafner is Kayak's CEO and English is the CTO.
