“With the addition of byte @ THE #IWiTCHAMP, the tournament hopes to engage a broader audience in the community and to enhance the spectator experience for all fans who attend,” said Harry Hardy, tournament director. “byte will highlight some of the best restaurants, chefs and breweries Central Indiana has to offer. This experience will offer something for everyone, from foodies to craft beer lovers, all for an affordable price.”

Participants will include Cerulean, Daredevil Brewing Company, Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda, Sun King Brewing, Ruth’s Chris and others. The entire restaurant and brewery list can be found at iwitchamp.com.

One notable byte participant is Sabrina Richards, a 13-year-old local chef who has been featured on Rachael Ray’s Kids Cookoff, Disney’s Food and Wine Festival and local events in the Indianapolis area. Sabrina will partner with Mimi Blue Meatballs on Saturday, Sept. 9.

“Indy’s culinary scene, which has attracted national attention over the past few years, is ripe for hosting a food experience that highlights the achievements of our women-owned restaurants and chefs,” said Lauren Petersen, director of Events & Community Engagement at TechPoint and chair of the IWiT Championship Ancillary Events Committee. “The IWiT Championship event week will capture the attention of and activate diverse corners of our tech ecosystem while shining a spotlight on Indy's vibrant food scene and supporting exceptional women entrepreneurs, chefs, brewers and more.”
