Nearly 1,000 industry and business leaders came together to celebrate the best in tech in Indiana Saturday at the 18th Annual Mira Awards. Mobility management software provider MOBI won Tech Company of the Year, while ClusterTruck took home Corporate Innovator of the Year and New Startup of the Year honors. At the ceremony at The Westin Indianapolis, Governor Eric Holcomb also surprised TechPoint Chief Executive Officer Mike Langellier with a Sagamore of the Wabash award.

A panel of 50 judged selected 15 winners and three honorable mentions from 90 companies, organizations and individuals that were nominated for the awards. TechPoint says the panel spent more than 800 total hours reviewing and ranking applications.
