LiftBridge CXO Won “Service Partner of the Year” at TechPoint Mira Awards, ‘Best of Tech in Indiana’

LiftBridge CXO was recognized at the annual gala at the JW Marriott on Saturday, April 23, 2022.

INDIANAPOLIS (IMMEDIATE RELEASE) — LiftBridge CXO won the award for Service Partner of the Year during TechPoint’s 23rd annual Mira Awards gala honoring the best of tech in Indiana. The Fishers woman-owned company fills a critically important gap for early-stage tech companies that can be long on innovation, product and markets but short on financial acuity. LiftBridge CXO created a customizable package of services derived from a comprehensive financial roadmap that all businesses need to succeed.

Veteran LiftBridge CXO professionals embed in their clients’ business, work on an "as-needed ' basis, and become a seamless part of the executive team. Since launching in 2020, LiftBridge CXO grew revenues more than 500% in 2021, helping 40 tech companies, most located in central Indiana, achieve success while also bringing greater diversity to boardroom and leadership meetings.

The Mira Awards Judges determined LiftBridge CXO’s effectiveness with its clients is likely to have a lasting impact on the success of Indiana tech ecosystem startups and scale-ups well past the critical five-year survival mark.

“In June 2020, we saw a need for strategic financial help at early stage and scale-up companies in the Indy tech market. With our experience as former CFOs of technology companies, my co-founders, Kay Whitaker and Kathy Kinder, and I knew we could serve that niche well. Not only are we proud to provide those services, but we love to bring diversity to the boardrooms and leadership teams. If we inspire any women or young girls to set goals and reach their dreams, then we’ve really won,” said Ashley Vukovits, Managing Director, Lightbridge CXO.

TechPoint, the nonprofit, industry-led growth accelerator for Indiana’s technology ecosystem, honored 16 award winners chosen from the 125 outstanding nominations during the organization’s annual Mira Awards gala, with presenting sponsor Salesforce.

Fifty-two independent, volunteer judges spent more than 850 total hours evaluating applications, interviewing nominees, and selecting this year’s winners. Judges included an impressive roster of company founders, CEOs and presidents, CTOs, CIOs, engineers and other industry professionals.

The Mira Awards are the state’s largest, best known and most prestigious technology awards, celebrating the “The Best of Tech in Indiana.” Mira Awards are named after the first of the brilliant variable stars to be discovered—the Mira Star. It is also the Latin root meaning “worthy of admiration, wonderful, marvelous.”
