BLASTmedia Named a TechPoint 2017 Mira Award Nominee

(INDIANAPOLIS— February 15, 2017) — BLASTmedia, a national B2B technology public relations agency, is honored to be a nominee in the Company Culture of the Year category for the 18th annual TechPoint Mira Awards presented by Angie’s List, Genesys and Salesforce.

“We’re humbled that BLASTmedia has been named a Mira Award finalist for Company Culture of the Year,” said BLASTmedia president, Lindsey Groepper. “We are nothing without our relentless, talented and wicked-smart people and appreciate the opportunity to highlight our agency in this way. For us, culture extends way beyond perks and flex hours – it’s the relationships that are formed between our people and fostering an inclusive, transparent and rewarding work environment.”

TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s technology ecosystem, produces the Mira Awards each year to honor the most innovative and successful technologies and technology companies in Indiana, as well as entrepreneurs and educators. Winners will be announced during the annual Mira Awards gala at The Westin Indianapolis on April 29, 2017.

“While we’ve seen tremendous growth in the tech sector overall working with companies across the country for the last decade, the maturation of and innovation within the Indy tech scene has been unmatched,” explained BLASTmedia CEO, Mendy Werne. “We look forward to seeing Indianapolis technology companies get the attention they deserve, and the opportunity to celebrate the state’s tech success with our Indiana-based clients.”

“In just over a decade, Indiana has seen more than $6.5 billion in acquisitions and IPOs from our tech community. More recently, in 2016, two-thirds of all the venture capital dollars and three-quarters of all the deals raised in Indiana went to tech companies,” said TechPoint President and CEO Mike Langellier. “The Mira Awards exist to celebrate our state’s tremendous tech success stories and amplify them to the media, investors and technology buyers nationwide.”

Nominees were selected by 50 independent subject-matter experts who evaluated and ranked the applications. At the end of February, all nominees will deliver presentations and answer questions in-person with an independent judging panel, and winners will be selected following the panel deliberations.
