Delaware has its own spin on innovation: Its chemical sciences industry started here, the credit card industry flourished here and modern incorporation still dominates here.
After nearly seven years of daily reporting on the First State’s tech and business economy, Technical.ly is taking on its own form of innovation. Inspired by sister site Generocity’s successful shift to a weekly newsletter as well as pilots in cities such as Milwaukee, Technical.ly is launching a bigger, more jam-packed, once-weekly version of our popular Delaware newsletter. If you’re among the thousands who already get our daily newsletter, you’ll be transitioned automatically.
The internet has only gotten more crowded during the inbox. We intend to give you one email you have to open if you care about where Delaware’s economy and innovation sector is going — and who can benefit from that future.
Starting today, you can expect:
- Deep dives on local innovation trends, answering questions like “Why exactly is Delaware one of the country’s fastest-growing remote work hubs?” and “Is the Wilmington small business culture more equitable than it was five years ago?”
- Explainers and guides to help you navigate topics such as workplace culture, salary and hiring trends, management strategy and the like
- Technical.ly’s best reporting from across communities we follow (Philly, Baltimore, DC and Pittsburgh), in addition to national trends that contextualize important issues for technologists and entrepreneurs on career and company growth
- Plus, a roundup of timely Delaware news covered elsewhere, including biz events and leadership changes
This shift also comes with a new role for longtime Delaware reporter Holly Quinn, who will become Technical.ly’s reporter at large and write the bulk of the work you’ll see. Some of her best recent work includes a series detailing Black and Latinx entrepreneurs’ work to stay afloat during the first year of the pandemic in Wilmington and an examination of tech apprenticeships and bootcamps as nontraditional ways to break into well-paying technology careers.
We’ll see you in your inbox on Thursdays.-30-
