We at Technical.ly launched our coverage of Delaware in June 2014 fully aware we were early.

Though the state’s business sector — backed by chemical sciences, credit card companies and incorporations, is decades-old and established — a true tech community is still thought to be fledgling here.

But in the nearly four years we’ve reported daily on innovation in the First State, we have seen this conversation head in the right direction. We want to do more.

We’ve been able to keep our work afloat in the ways we do across the four other Mid-Atlantic cities we report on: by producing events (like the forthcoming tech jobs fair NET/WORK, Delaware innovation Week, the summertime Super Meetup and partnering on OpenBracket) and working on underwritten reporting series and talent acquisition strategies for growing tech firms.

If the organization you work for works with us on those projects, you support the reporting we do here. Thank you. But we want to do more, and we’ve never had a clear, direct way for individuals to support what we’ve done and hope to do more of. That’s how we get the local news you want.

That’s why today Technical.ly has announced the launch of an individual membership offering across the communities we report on.

This is not a paywall. Our reporting will remain free and accessible. We’ll continue to write the first draft of Delaware’s future economic history.

I’m also not interested in selling you something — no tote bag here. For $12 a month at launch, members will get early access to our events, premium reporting and staff face-time. We think there’s great value in that. But more centrally, I believe Delaware is better with someone consistently reporting on the innovation economy here, and we want you to help us shape the relationships we can have with our readers.

I’m thrilled with the work our lead reporter Holly Quinn is doing, aided by our editor Zack Seward, not to mention our events and business team (all of us pictured above grinning at last summer’s Super Meetup).

In the course of discussing the launch of membership, I’ve found myself reminding friends that local media is actually more expensive the more local it goes. All of the fixed costs of regional or national (or global) are the same for a small operation like ours, but the scale isn’t. We serve and report on a niche community because we think they’re the changemakers for Delaware.

Now more than ever, we need to vote for the kind of local media we want to have. Join us.

You must appreciate accurate, relevant and productive community journalism.  Support this sort of work from professional reporters with seasoned editors.  Become a Technical.ly member for $12 per month -30-
