Exciting mid-week news from SwiftKey headquarters – our co-founders Jon Reynolds and Dr Ben Medlock have been shortlisted by the Guardian Culture Professionals Network and The Hospital Club in the Gaming and Technology section of the prestigious h.Club 100. The mysteriously titled h.Club 100 is a national search for the most exciting and innovative individuals actively shaping the future of the UK’s creative industries.
Jon and Ben are up against some impressive competition in their section including the founders of Monitise, YPlan, Decoded, Snap Fashion, Hailo and Badoo, and we need you to help them win by voting for them! You can do this here anytime up to Sunday 3rd November. The final 100 will be announced on Monday 18th November.
When Caitlin Moran, Helen Mirren and JK Rowling are examples of the types of people in the running for this longlist, it’s no surprise that this final 100 will comprise a definitive ‘who’s who’ of some of the most awe-inspiring and creative minds on the scene today.
Elsewhere SwiftKey was shortlisted for Innovator of the Year at the Growing Business awards which took place last night against Just Eat, Plan Bee, Versarien, Mesaplexx and Direct Healthcare Services. It was a well-deserved win by Versarien and we were flattered to be in such illustrious company!
