INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 14, 2019) – Perceivant, an education technology company that replaces traditional textbooks with cost-effective, interactive and data-driven learning experiences, today announces the nomination in the 2019 Mira Awards. The Mira Awards gala—the biggest tech awards event in the state—celebrates the people, products, companies, and places chosen as ‘The Best of Tech in Indiana’.
Perceivant is a nominee in the New Tech Product of the Year category, which recognizes highly innovative and ground-breaking tech products that burst onto the scene and took it by storm in just the last year. Perceivant is being recognized for its product’s newly-incorporated guided learning approach to reading textbooks, which reinforces learning objectives and course materials in low-stress environments to improve competency and analyze course efficacy while compromising its integrity.
“We’re honored to be included in the nominations for this year’s Mira awards,” said Perceivant CEO and founder Brian Rowe. “The Indiana tech landscape is an exciting place to work and we’re thrilled to be a part of its thriving culture.”
The growth of Indiana’s tech ecosystem is evident among Mira Awards nominees. Only a handful of the 2019 nominees existed as companies 20 years ago, and 82 percent were founded in just the past 10 years. Similar to the rapid adoption of the iPhone starting a decade ago and streaming services today, tech businesses in Indiana have grown from a few pioneers to a fast-growing, vibrant industry that is a key driver of job growth and a critical part of the state’s economic success story.
“There is little doubt that tech will continue to be an area of significant growth for Indiana, as we see local tech companies growing, out-of-state companies opening offices here, and large enterprises from other industries becoming increasingly tech-enabled,” said Mike Langellier, CEO of TechPoint. “This is a special year, as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Mira Awards, and we look forward to recognizing the people, companies, and places that are Indiana’s current and future success stories.”
Nominees were selected by 48 independent subject matter experts who evaluated and ranked the applications. Later this month, nominees will present their cases to judging panels, after which the judges will select the winners following deliberations.
