Pop that champagne, smooch your significant other (or a stranger, if they’re cool with it) and raise your glass for a toast — today, we turn one.
In celebration of a successful year of delivering technology and entrepreneurship news to Delaware, we wanted to share with you ten of the moments we’re most proud of since our official launch last summer.
- Guest contributor and local Wilmington business owner Venu Gaddamidi urged readers to take up arms economically and fight against the disparaging label by actively taking part in the revitalization.
- Over a dozen tech firms in Delaware came out to meet and greet local talent.
- Six months later and we’re still amped that we had the opportunity to show Delaware how women are playing a role in leading a male-dominated sector.
4. Six of the coolest places to do tech work in Wilmington
- Complete with pictures!
5. Urbanist David Curtis’ petition to get SEPTA to add more trips back and forth between Wilmington and Philadelphia
- Not only did the petition work, but it’s still working. The economic benefits of these additional trips will play a huge part in the revitalization process.
- Will it help or hurt the city, and how will it affect the city’s fledgling innovation corridor?
7. Speaking of Wilmington’s innovation corridor, we’ve been covering its growth, its potential for growth and how necessary the corridor is to stimulate Delaware’s innovation community
- The importance of this asset should not be understated nor ignored. But how will the departure of key Wilmington founders influence that growth?
9. Sussex county’s struggle to supply rural Delawareans with sufficient internet access
- Though southern Delaware is getting tons of fiber infrastructure this coming fall, the lack of access has taken its toll on hard-working farmers who, surprisingly or not, rely on broadband to keep up in the agriculture industry.
10. A list of Delaware brands who are real good at social media
- This is some sponsored ‘tent that ended up being really popular. A great example of providing value to our readers and our brand partners.
It’s been a heckuva year, y’all. Thanks for supporting us along the way. What excites us most is the chance continue supplying Delaware with the tech and entrepreneurship news it needs to build a durable, robust and successful innovation community. Here’s to many more.-30-
