Technically Philly is a news organization that aims to help better Philadelphia through technology, by furthering dialogue and connecting its assets.

We earn revenue (and broader impact) through the mission-focused Philly Tech Week (coming again the last week of April), in addition to other events and some underwriting and foundation support. We’re excited about the model.

While we continue to grow here in Philadelphia, we want to have impact in another growing, fractured technology community. Today, we’re announcing that later this summer, we’ll be soft launching Technically Baltimore, with plans for a more formal launch in the fall.

Because we care a whole lot about authenticity and working with a community’s existing strengths, we’re particularly excited to note that we’ll be launching Technically Baltimore in partnership with StartupBaltimore.org, a blog and entrepreneurial community launched by local web designer and startup community organizer Mike Brenner, who will help us transition it into our new publication.

For now, we’re looking for the right Baltimore reporter for the job, someone who wants to get neck-deep in an innovative scene and be a part of what a reporter looks like in the future: one who takes responsibility for having positive impact in the communities she reports.

Check out the job description on BaltimoreTech.net here and JournalismJobs.com here.

For those of you in Philly, nothing to fear. We’ll have the same — if not stronger — coverage here, as we aim to better connect another great city and, perhaps in time, bring together a very strong East Coast technology corridor.
