Speechmatics is pleased to announce that we have been crowned winners of the High Growth / Scale-Up Team of the Year ‘One to Watch’ Award by the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA). Speechmatics have been recognized for the achievements of their exceptional team over the past 18 months, as well as showing ambition and innovation with a strong ethos of team working.

VP of Engineering at Speechmatics, Paul Aykroyd, commented on the award success, saying

“Our success in this award is great recognition of our hard work, growth and future aspirations as a forward-thinking speech recognition company. I am proud of the team for their continued commitment to our customers and their understanding of the speech recognition market. Their knowledge and expertise not only helps them to understand customer requirements but also facilitates the R&D and eventual deployment of innovative features for our speech engine. The award is well deserved for the team and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Speechmatics in this fast-growing market.”

The investment from IQ Capital Partners and Amadeus Capital Partners has been key to providing the necessary resources to facilitate our R&D to remain at the forefront of speech innovation. So, what’s next for Speechmatics? We’re excited to be part of and driving the speech revolution, creating new markets and opportunities for our customers that have previously been out of reach. We’ll be at IBC in Amsterdam from 14th – 18th September, why not come along to Stand 8E17 and see some of our latest speech innovations? Ben Leaman, Speechmatics
