If you were to look into the future at a thriving Delaware, you will almost surely find new generations of entrepreneurs building businesses and a defined community of technologists solving for big problems. It’s a future nearly all communities are chasing, hence the attention paid to growing local tech communities.

Yet today — since the 1970s, really — rates of incorporation have been declining across the country. Nationally, competition for engineers and data scientists remains fierce. So there is no sure path from where we are now to where we are going. We must do something about it.

That rallying cry is among the goals for this second annual Delaware Innovation Week, an open calendar of events around technology and entrepreneurship we at Technical.ly organize with dozens of community partners, including our title sponsor 1313 Innovation, the tech incubator front-door of McConnell Johnson Real Estate. #DIW16 aims to bring together and strengthen the community of entrepreneurs and technologists in an effort to welcome people here.

Among the nearly 30 events taking place during the next week, tonight we hear from a leader on gamification, start a weekend of business creation, host a series of tech competitions and smarten up small businesses. (More free startup knowledge on Monday, by the way.)

Of course, many of you organize events year-round with these efforts in mind — we at Technical.ly do that, too. Each February we host our prized NET/WORK jobs fair in Delaware and, for the first time, this past weekend we helped organize {OpenBracket, a major coding competition with the finals in Wilmington.

To capture the best minds it can, Delaware needs dynamism 365 days a year. But we also need to grow a big festival that can be ours, a time for reflection and celebration. That’s what Delaware Innovation Week promises. So get out there and see what this state has to offer.

Sincerely,

Christopher Wink and the entire Technical.ly team
