This editorial article is a part of's Growing Industries month.

It’s April, which means we at have growing industries on the brain.

That’s not a disease, but the focus of this month of our editorial calendar. We’ll be exploring one particular industry for each of our four markets — and in Delaware, that’s biotech (speaking of diseases).

Why? Biotech is to Delaware’s future as chemical engineering was to its past. When we talk about tech startups in the First State, we’re likely talking about a medical device or agricultural innovation rather than a web application.

Some relevant recent stories:

Another reason: Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast is fast approaching, and you can expect a bunch of science-focused events throughout it nine days. At the Introduced by conference on May 10, for instance, hear case studies and panel discussions from local docs and the like. (Psst, get a free PTW19 T-shirt with your ticket purchase this week only.)

We’re also planning a biotech-specific realLIST — aka our annual roundup of each market’s most promising startups — for the end of the month. Nominate any notable biotech companies to be considered for inclusion (regardless of whether they’re startups or not) by telling us why they’re “real,” meaning that they have experienced leaders, are working on an original idea or have had a successful year, below.
