The event celebrated the release of the second annual edition with the latest edition of Delaware Business Times on June 12. The 144-page publication showcases Delaware’s most creative companies through a series of profiles, features and Q&As.
The book is organized by sectors, including advanced manufacturing, bioscience, chemistry, education/research, fintech, health care, hospitality/tourism and software/digital enterprises.
“It’s important not only to do the work but to tell the story,” said Dr. Dennis Assanis, president of the University of Delaware, speaking at the event. “That’s why we are so grateful for what the Delaware Business Times and Innovation Delaware are doing to tell this story. I think there is a big gap between where we’re going and what people perceive.”
Kurt Foreman, CEO of the Delaware Prosperity Partnership, also spoke about the value of spreading the word about economic development opportunities in Delaware. “People are hungry for stories, real stories of things that are going on,” he said.
Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki, Council President Hanifa Shabazz, Rep. Paul Baumbach, Rep. Mike Ramone, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer and Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall Long also attended the unveiling.
A digital edition of the publication will be available soon.
