SEP Named TechPoint Mira Award Nominee for “Company Culture of the Year”
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 20, 2018) — TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s technology ecosystem, has announced the nominees for its 19th annual Mira Awards presented by Angie’s List and Salesforce. The Mira Awards program is a six-month season of events and communications honoring ‘The Best of Tech in Indiana’ each year.
“Our tech community has been undergoing remarkable growth in recent years with $7 billion in acquisitions and IPO’s 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,” said TechPoint President and CEO Mike Langellier.
“This year’s record class of Mira Award nominees further demonstrates that growth. The 55 total nominees competing for top honors in the six different companies categories have collectively hired 1,150 people and very nearly doubled their revenue from $3.9 billion to $6.8 billion over just the past three years! We look forward to celebrating them during the Mira Awards gala on April 28th with the rest of the tech community.”
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, and then the judges will select the winners following their deliberations.
Counting only information submitted by the 55 different companies competing in the six company categories, this year’s Mira Award nominees employ 55,465 people worldwide and 14,327 people here in Indiana. In 2017, these companies posted revenues of more than $6.8 billion.
SEP was named a nominee for “Company Culture of the Year” along with many other great tech companies:

- Kronos Incorporated
- Seven Corners
- Upper Hand
Winners will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony and gala featuring a reception and three-course seated dinner with live entertainment on Saturday, April 28th, at the JW Marriott — Indianapolis.
