The technology, entrepreneurship and innovation community of Delaware needs a rallying cry.

The inaugural year of Delaware Innovation Week, presented by 1313 Innovation and organized by Technical.ly, took place Nov. 13-21 throughout the state as timed with Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The weeklong celebration of technology and innovation was the start of that rallying cry.

Amid a growing collection of regular events, a stronger network of supporters and broader awareness of the importance of developing the future of Delaware’s economy, we aimed to bring all the parts together to make the loudest collective shout. Delaware Innovation Week is the showcase for Delaware’s technologists, entrepreneurs and leaders.

Across nearly 25 events, we had more than 2,000 attendees, with the help of 30 partners — event organizers, media supporters and sponsors. We’re proud of the starting point.

(Get it on your calendar now, #DIW16 will take place Nov. 11-19, 2016.)

Here are a few outcomes from the week:
