FISHERS, IND. (PRWEB) MAY 01, 2017
ClearObject, an Internet of Things (IoT) Systems Innovator, is honored to win Scale-up Company of the Year ($5M-$20M) for the 18th annual TechPoint Mira Awards presented by Angie’s List, Genesys and Salesforce.
TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s technology ecosystem, produces the Mira Awards each year to honor the most innovative and successful technologies and technology companies in Indiana, as well as entrepreneurs and educators. Winners were announced during the annual Mira Awards gala at The Westin Indianapolis on April 29, 2017.
There are significant opportunities for tech businesses in Indiana, and in order to continue to sustain growth and set a precedent as a tech hub, the Mira’s Scale-up Company of the Year ($5M-$20M) award provides acknowledgment and helps generate recognition for those who have moved beyond the start-up phase to take their business to the next level.
“The ClearObject team has worked hard to help clients bring their IoT products and projects to life and to be selected from among nearly 100 nominees is truly an honor,” said John McDonald, CEO of ClearObject. “It is rewarding to spend an evening celebrating not only our team’s achievements, but the success and dedication of Indiana’s entire technology community.”
A total of 15 award winners and three honorable mentions were chosen from the 90 outstanding companies, organizations, and individuals who were selected as nominees this year out of the 180 applications received highlighting achievements during the 2016 calendar year.
Fifty independent, volunteer judges spent more than 800 total hours reviewing and ranking applications, interviewing nominees, and selecting this year’s winners. Judges included company founders, CEOs and presidents, CTOs, CIOs, software developers, and a variety of other entrepreneurs and subject matter experts.
The Mira Awards—Indiana’s longest running technology awards program—amplify success stories of some of the very best Indiana startups, scale-ups, and established tech companies, which helps them win new customers, attract investment capital, and acquire skilled talent. The Mira Awards are a large, annual part of TechPoint’s mission to accelerate tech growth in Indiana.
“In just over a decade, Indiana has seen more than $6.5 billion in acquisitions and IPOs from our tech community. More recently, in 2016, two-thirds of all the venture capital dollars and three-quarters of all the deals raised in Indiana went to tech companies,” said TechPoint President and CEO Mike Langellier. “The Mira Awards exist to celebrate our state’s tremendous tech success stories and amplify them to media, investors and technology buyers nationwide.”
The award comes just over a month after it was announced ClearObject had won the first-ever People’s Choice Mira Award for Best Tech Event for IndyIoT Symposium.
