We have an exciting announcement to share with you – we’ve completed a “series B” investment round worth $17.5m (£11.3m), which was led by Index Ventures alongside our existing investors Octopus Investments and a number of notable angels.
The funding, which comes alongside the revenue we make from app stores and licensing deals, will help us speed up our product roadmap and fuel our expansion globally, particularly in the US and Asia.
This is a significant milestone for us as a business and comes after another successful 12 months for the company – our staff numbers have tripled in size, we’ve signed some amazing deals with world-renowned manufacturers and we’ve retained our position as Android’s best-selling paid app!
Index Ventures’ Martin Mignot has posted a blog on their site explaining why they’re investing in SwiftKey. If you’re a journalist or blogger, or you simply want to read more information about the finance round, you can also find out more on our press release page.
Thanks to all our users for your ongoing support,
Jon, Ben and the SwiftKey team
