Intelligence is most deserving of our Tech Company of the Year Award.”

“Don’s numerous accomplishments – from starting three successful software
companies here in Indiana, to serving as mentor and providing financial
support to other local technology entrepreneurs – make him a true
trailblazer,” Langellier said.

This year’s Mira Awards had a record 91 finalists being evaluated across 14
award categories. Winners were selected by an expert panel of 39 judges. The
panel included serial entrepreneurs, CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, professors, attorneys,
