About Us

Excell is a seed and early stage venture fund that invests in high potential companies emerging from the communities and universities across upstate New York. We are usually the first institutional money in and we frequently lead the round.  In 2013, Excell was chosen to be the only fund manager of New York State’s MWBE Fund. The average investment for Excell is $250,000 to $500,000.


Excell’s Israeli Liaison Office
Our Israeli liaison office gives us “on the ground” access to information and investment opportunities in this extraordinary region, and helps us to identify those that have the potential to establish operations in New York State.
In addition, Excell has a cooperative relationship with Israeli-based Create Advisors, a global investment banking and advisory firm. This connection gives Excell increased exposure to promising technology companies, entrepreneurs, and emerging technologies that might be candidates for early-stage investment.
