Technically Media CEO Chris Wink is Now an LP in RareBreed Ventures


RareBreed Ventures will focus on early-stage companies from underrepresented backgrounds.

I am the cofounder, CEO and publisher of Technically Media, a news organization that publishes Our independent newsroom reports on how tech economies are shaped, including the investors, entrepreneurs, technologists and community builders who do the shaping.

First as a journalist and a community organizer and now in leading an organization that does that work, I’ve focused my entire career on how cities can foster dynamic and inclusive economic growth. From the outset, that has included a special interest in Black wealth creation — I was reminded recently of our collaboration in 2012 on the “What It Takes to be a Black tech entrepreneur” summit.

For me, journalism is a tool to make the communities we serve better, so I’ve had a personal goal to find more direct ways to contribute to our organizational mission. That’s why I’m proud to disclose that I have become a small limited partner in the first fund from RareBreed Ventures, a pre-seed venture capital firm founded by Maryland-based Managing Partner McKeever Conwell II. Conwell is completing the raise of a $10 million fund that will focus on early-stage companies from underrepresented backgrounds, including those building outside Silicon Valley and New York City. This will feature, though not be limited to, a special focus on Black-founded companies.
