Another Mira Awards gala has come to a close! Together with Annie Grinstead and her Positive Energy Events team, TechPoint delivered a unique celebration of ‘the Best of Tech in Indiana’ and a memorable night recognizing the people, products, and companies that are drawing so much attention to this community as a center of innovation.
Anderson, Ind.-native singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin performed three sets throughout the night entertaining the nominees and their guests by belting out crowd-favorite cover songs and original numbers from his new album LIKE US.
