Mira Awards are sponsored by TechPoint, which is the nonprofit, industry-led growth initiative for Indiana’s technology companies and overall tech ecosystem. The TechPoint team is focused on attracting talent, accelerating scale-up companies, activating the community, and amplifying stories of success.
Award nominees were selected by 52 independent subject matter experts who evaluated and ranked the applications. In March, nominees will deliver presentations and answer questions in person with one of the independent judging panels. The judges will then select the winners following their deliberations.

TechPoint President & CEO Mike Langellier said:
“Our tech community has been undergoing remarkable growth in recent years with $7 billion in acquisitions and IPOs in the past decade, ranking Indianapolis and Central Indiana one of the top 10 fastest growing tech ecosystems in the country. Last year, LinkedIn and Zillow both ranked Indianapolis number one in America’s Sweet Spots: Cities Where Job Opportunity and Housing Affordability Intersect.”
TechPoint created the awards program in 1999 to recognize tech-related achievements and innovation statewide, and ultimately to stimulate future tech growth and entrepreneurship. Among recent Mira Award winners, many have increased sales, venture capital, and talent attraction.
The next step is for nominees to deliver presentations and answer questions in-person with one of the independent judging panels, and the judges will then deliberate and select the winners. Award winners are announced at a black-tie awards ceremony and gala on Saturday, April 28.
