It meant something real to be named by City&State as among 100 Pennsylvanians making the deepest impact toward their mission. I run a news organization, so I know how erratic nominations can be from publishers, but I also know lots of people put real effort into acknowledging serious work. Thank you.
Their write up:
Philadelphia’s scrappy tech scene owes a huge debt to Christopher Wink. Nearly a decade ago, Wink co-founded Technically, a $2 million digital media company that publishes Technical.ly, a forum for tech business news, as well as the nonprofit news site Generocity.org. Wink also founded Philly Tech Week, a must-attend annual event for the city’s IT community. A onetime reporter, Wink previously worked for a homeless advocacy nonprofit and currently serves on the board of Philadelphia’s project-based Workshop School.
Here are the words from my social media manager (whom, yes, I employ 🙂
Sending a HUGE congrats to our cofounder and CEO Christopher Wink for being named one of the 100 most influential people doing mission work in Pennsylvania by City & State PA.
Between our coverage of tech economies in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, in addition to other cities, plus the convening, reporting and other challenging work we do to make better and more inclusive communities, we’re so proud of Chris! https://lnkd.in/eSwxfb9B
