The state will recognize 20 businesses Thursday as 2015 Companies to Watch. The winners were announced last month, representing industries ranging from technology to construction. The businesses are located in 11 counties and were selected from a pool of 50 nominees.
Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann and Indiana Office of Small Business and Entrepreneurship Executive Director Jacob Schpok will present the awards at a ceremony Thursday evening at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis.
The annual program is a partnership among the state and the Michigan-based, entrepreneurship-focused Edward Lowe Foundation.
