Finally, an award for tech builders

Every community seems to have the same problem. We do a good job of recognizing the rising stars and the trailblazing lifetime achievers, but nobody ever does much to celebrate the exceptional people in the middle — the actual tech builders and creators.

techpoint-tech25-logoWell, TechPoint is about to remedy that for the tech sector in Indiana.

Starting in 2015, we are launching the Tech 25: Recognizing Indiana’s Tech Builders. It’s a prestigious designation for 25 individuals who are critical to building organizations in our community, but very seldom get the recognition they deserve.

You could think of it like an IBJ Forty Under 40, except the Tech 25 is exclusively focused on the tech ecosystem and there are no age restrictions whatsoever.

Here’s how it works:

Winners will be selected from three main role categories, reinforcing the core roles that building product and building revenue play:

  • 10 winners in Tech Product and R&D
  • 10 winners in Sales and Marketing
  • 5 winners in Other

In addition to being star performers, nominees should also be excellent, committed team players who build others up through mentoring, teaching and positive example.

Who on your team should be part of this year’s inaugural class of the Tech 25?

We invite and encourage you to nominate up to two members of your team. Each of the 25 will be profiled, along with your organization, on techpoint.org.

It will be a great way to showcase your critical role players, your organization, build your employment brand and boost team morale. We will celebrate these individuals at the Mira Awards on May 2.
