Recognizing ground-breaking and disruptive new tech products coming from innovative organizations in Indiana

This year’s Tech Product of the Year nominees are on a mission to solve real-world problems. The nominees in this category range from small teams like Zylo who serve large brand accounts like Nike and secured $22.5 million in Series B funding, to large corporations like Cummins, Inc. who quickly pivoted and responded to COVID-19 needs by utilizing labor and equipment to manufacture high-efficiency particulate filters for use in 3M’s Powered Air Purifying Respirators in Indiana.

The Tech Product of the Year award recognizes ground-breaking and disruptive new tech products that highlight the innovation coming from Indiana. These commercially available, technology-based products (hardware or software) have demonstrated that they have the lasting ability and potential to become technology staples.

The nominees in this category use their resources and products to help people and organizations in a variety of ways, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 120Water, the fastest growing digital water company in the country, is working with schools, childcare facilities, hotels, and other large buildings to provide useful guidance to test their water supply in light of COVID-19 concerns. Anvl expanded in Fishers, Ind. last year and further seed funding is helping them expand their operations to support companies who are modernizing their safety programs by engaging front-line workers. hc1 launched a free CV19 Lab Testing Dashboard to show test results data for the SARS CoV-2 RNA genome test to help healthcare professionals best respond to the pandemic across the United States.

The past winners in this category have also seen great success, including 2019 Mira Award winner SIMBA Chain who has surpassed 1,000 apps on their platform and been awarded a contract from the U.S. Navy to deploy secure messaging solutions. The Heliponix GroPod (2018 Mira Award winner) has received more investment funds and continued to innovate their smart garden appliances that grow daily produce like greens and herbs in the comfort of your home without the use of any pesticides or preservatives. And 2017 Mira Award winner DemandJump—a nominee again tis year—has gone on to win the trust (and business) of leading digital marketers at Fortune 500 companies who use DemandJump’s data science driven platform to fuel growth, improve their ROI, and win more customers.
