BLOOMINGTON, IN—April 15, 2009—Today TechPoint announced Information in Place as one of its Information Technology Company finalists for its highly regarded Mira awards. Now in its 10th year, the 2009 TechPoint Mira Awards presented by BKD represent the top technology businesses, business professionals and educators in the state of Indiana. Four independent panels of judges chose 63 finalists from a record number of nominations in 11 categories this year. “To receive a record number of entries into the Mira Awards competition and to see so many technology-related companies thriving-particularly during the current national economic downturn-is a real testament to the strength of Indiana’s tech sector,” said Jim Jay, president and CEO of TechPoint. “The Mira Awards recognize the achievements of some outstanding performers and contributors, and it’s also a great way to focus attention on the broader issue of the important role technology plays in our state’s economy.”
According to the 2009 TechAmerica CyberStates report, Indiana’s high-tech economy employs more than 71,000 technology professionals representing an annual payroll of $4.2 billion. CyberStates reports that these in-demand positions pay an average of $83,000 annually, more than double Indiana’s latest reported per-capita income of $32,000.
The 2009 winners will be announced at an “Oscars-style” award ceremony being held Sat., May 16 at The Westin Indianapolis. TechPoint will also honor the past Mira Awards winners and finalists attending the ceremony.
