From a record-breaking 211 total entries, Docket was chosen by an independent judging panel to advance as a nominee for Startup of the Year and Tech Product of the Year
Winners will be announced Thursday, April 22, 2021 during a live virtual broadcast
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.— TechPoint, the nonprofit, industry-led growth initiative for Indiana’s technology ecosystem, announced the nominees for its 22nd annual Mira Awards program presented by Salesforce. Indianapolis-based meeting management software Docket is nominated in two categories for Startup of the Year and Tech Product of the Year.
The Mira Awards is the state’s largest and longest-running technology excellence and innovation recognition program, and the annual gala celebrates the “The Best of Tech in Indiana.” Last year, an estimated 5,000+ people watched the first-ever virtual live broadcast of TechPoint’s Mira Awards gala.
“We love being a part of this extraordinary tech community,” said Darin Brown, CEO of Docket. “So many individuals and organizations gave their skill and expertise to making a difference over the last several months. It’s an honor to be nominated alongside so many great contributors.”
Over the last year, Docket’s meeting intelligence platform helped thousands of teams lead more productive meetings during the global shift to remote and hybrid work. A leader in G2’s first-ever Grid Report for the new category, Meeting Management Software, Docket was named the winner of Zoom’s first-ever “Whale Watch” Marketplace app competition.
“The Mira Awards perennially celebrate remarkable growth and achievement by Hoosiers across our tech community. This year’s nominee stories also demonstrate inspirational and remarkable creativity, resilience, and persistence amidst the challenges of a pandemic,” said Mike Langellier, president and CEO of TechPoint. “We invite Hoosiers across the state to tune in the night of April 22nd to hear these stories and celebrate with us.”

Nominees were selected by 52 independent judges who evaluated and ranked the applications. In early March, nominees will present their cases and be interviewed by judging panels, after which the judges will select the winners following deliberations. The judges include company founders, CEOs and presidents, CTOs, CIOs, and other community leaders and subject matter experts.
The nominees include individuals, community organizations, investors, education institutions, cities, and tech employers with remarkable achievements in the prior year. In aggregate, the 53 company nominees that provided data employ more than 18,600 people in the state of Indiana and they represent nearly $8.54 billion in annual revenue. Also represented are newly launched startups and fast-growing scale-ups that achieved three-digit and even four-digit percentage revenue growth in calendar-year 2020.
The 2021 Mira Awards nominee class is the most diverse in the program’s 22-year history with 36% of all nominees (44 entries total) being women, people of color, immigrants or more than one of these intersectional groups in an owner, founder or CEO/president role.
