TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s digital innovation economy, has announced the 2023 Tech 25 Honorees.

For the past nine years, the Tech 25 Awards have put a spotlight on a wide range of roles within tech businesses that don’t often get public recognition. The 25 honorees are selected by a panel of independent judges, celebrating the remarkable achievements and contributions of these individuals for their teams, the community, and the advancement of tech.

Honorees are selected in four main job role categories:

  • Tech Innovation Strategy & Community
  • Tech Operations
  • Tech R&D/Product
  • Tech Sales & Marketing

Tech 25 candidates are nominated by managers, colleagues, mentors outside of the company, etc.—anyone who sees the impact of their exemplary work and many achievements.

Andy Chen, Senior Product Strategist at SEP, has been named a 2023 Tech 25 Honoree.
