The Mira Awards bring us together as a community to celebrate the state’s tremendous tech success stories and amplify them to media, investors and technology buyers nationwide. This year’s gala will be held April 23, at The Westin — Indianapolis.
Where did we get the name?
The Mira Awards are named after the first of the brilliant variable stars to be discovered — the Mira Star.
More than an event. It’s a season!
The Mira Awards season begins in January with applications, followed by the judging process in February and “Meet the Nominees” events in March. The awards gala in April is like the “Oscars for Tech” and the Winners Circle in May revs up even more opportunities.
