Indianapolis-based TechPoint on Tuesday unveiled the nominees for its 24th annual Mira Awards, honoring the “Best in Tech” in Indiana.
The not-for-profit advocate for Indiana’s technology sector said the 78 nominees were chosen from a record number of entries and represent almost all regions of the state.
The winners will be announced April 22 during the Mira Awards Gala at the J.W. Marriott in downtown Indianapolis.
The nominees include individuals, educators, community organizations, state agencies, investors, entrepreneurs and tech employers. TechPoint said the company nominees employ more than 57,000 Hoosiers and represent more than $20 billion in annual revenue.
CEO Ting Gootee said the number of nominations and entries show how much is going on in Indiana’s technology ecosystem.
“These nominees include familiar tech companies, for sure, but also highly tech-enabled industries like healthcare, life sciences and public safety; advanced manufacturing and logistics; agribiosciences; banking and finance; academia and more,” Gootee said in written remarks. “We’re very pleased to see the amount of cross-sector activity in this age of digital 4.0.”
The nominees were chosen by 56 independent judges. They will present their cases and be interviewed by judging panels in March at the new Infosys facility at the former Indianapolis International Airport terminal.
In addition to the 14 categories, TechPoint will also announce the winners of its special industry recognition awards – the TechPoint Foundation for Youth Bridge Builder Award, and the Nextech K-12 Computer Science Teacher of the Year Award, the Deal of the Year Award and the TechPoint Trailblazer Award – at a later date.
The Fight for Life Foundation was nominated in the “Education Impact Award” category. We want to congratulate all of the MIRA nominees.
