Who propels your local innovation community forward?
This May, Technical.ly is bringing back our annual RealLIST Connectors, our roundups of tech and entrepreneurship community builders in Philly, Baltimore, DC and Delaware — plus, for the first time, Pittsburgh, where we’ve been reporting full-time since June of last year.
In 2020, we published these comprehensive rundowns of the 100 or so people who most make your local tech community tick. They’re the leaders who we’d tell someone, if they’re new in town, to first meet for coffee so they can understand where to plug in. These lists are not meant to represent the city’s most powerful (though there’s some overlap), but instead those who are influential connectors in the most dynamic part of your region’s economy.
Then in 2021, we published timely addendums: We turned to 2020’s honorees for nominations and put a focus on the folks who made an impact during a tough year. Find all editions from both years here.
Now, we’re asking you to help shape our 2022 lists.
Our RealLIST Connectors might volunteer for a well-regarded programmers’ meetup, run a program improving access for underrepresented groups or be an entrepreneur who now mentors others. They might lead an economic development group or be the go-to startup lawyer who’s secretly helping everyone you know grow. Or they might do something wildly different; we’re open to your interpretation of the term.
