SwiftKey has today been announced as one of the fifty rising companies across the UK to make it onto this year’s Future Fifty programme. The Future Fifty is a year-long scheme that comprises those companies that have been marked out for their exponential growth and ongoing potential both in the UK and on an international level.
During this time the selected fifty will have unprecedented access to government and private sector expertise, with the aim being to fast-track growth across companies like SwiftKey and in time make a significant impact on the UK’s economy.
SwiftKey is in pretty illustrious company with other disruptive tech businesses – including Notonthehighstreet.com, Graze and MOO.COM – all included in the Future Fifty scheme. The sheer scope of the companies who have made the Future Fifty, which includes the fashion, leisure and property sectors, is indicative of the versatile nature of technology and goes some way in explaining the surge in break-out tech companies in recent years.
Our CEO and co-founder Jon Reynolds commented: ‘‘We are thrilled to have been selected for this year’s Future Fifty scheme and that we have been recognised in such illustrious company. It is testament to our culture of innovation across and commitment to providing our users with the best possible smartphone experience. We look forward to working closely with the Future Fifty team and to gaining further exposure to the expertise offered by the scheme over the next year.’
The Future Fifty programme was originally announced by the Chancellor George Osborne and Joanna Shields, CEO of Tech City UK and UK Business Ambassador for Digital Industries.
