Christopher Wink: Technically, Journalism Isn't an Industry

Christopher Wink: Technically, Journalism Isn't an Industry

Christopher Wink is the Publisher and CEO of Technically Media, which publishes local tech news network Technical.ly and nonprofit news site Generocity.org. He’s a lead organizer of Philly Tech Week and Baltimore Innovation Week, and in 2017 Folio magazine listed him as one of the 100 most innovative media leaders in the country.

In this episode, you’ll hear how in 2008, right as the economy collapsed, Technically started as a tech blog between 3 friends who were looking to get experience in an industry that wasn’t hiring. Chris will share how they would weather the storm, and how over the past 10 years they’ve built a company that not only reports but also offers events, conferences, and a hiring platform.

And, we’ll dive into the mindset of an entrepreneur, and how the line between huge success and catastrophic failure is often invisible.
