Impact Networking, a national managed service provider (MSP), announced today that it has been selected as a nominee in the Service Partner of the Year category for the 24th annual Mira Awards program. The Mira Awards, presented by TechPoint, the industry-led growth initiative for Indiana’s technology sector, are the state’s largest, best known, and most prestigious technology awards. Its annual gala celebrates the “Best of Tech” in Indiana.
TechPoint received a record-breaking 236 nominations and entries for the awards this year — 38% more than the previous high-water mark set in 2018. The 141 entries advancing as 2023 Mira Award nominees include individuals, educators, community organizations, state agencies, investors, entrepreneurs, and tech employers with remarkable achievements in the prior year. In aggregate, the nominated companies that provided data employ more than 57,000 people in Indiana and generate more than $20.1 billion in annual revenue.
“The record number of entries and nominations is exciting and shows just how much is going on in Indiana’s digital innovation economy where technology is powering economic growth in our advanced sectors,” said TechPoint President and CEO Ting Gootee. “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; agri-biosciences; banking and finance; academia; and more. We’re very pleased to see the amount of cross-sector activity in this age of digital 4.0.”
Nominees were selected by 56 independent judges who evaluated and ranked the applications. In early March, nominees will present their cases and be interviewed by judging panels held at the new Infosys facility at the former Indianapolis Airport, after which the judges will deliberate and select the winners. Judges include company founders, executives, and other community leaders and subject matter experts.
