Speechmatics, a venture that converts spoken language into written text, was named as a “One to Watch” startup at the annual UK Angel Investment Awards of the UK Business Angels Association. Speechmatics was nominated in the Scale-Up Team of the Year category for “addressing the challenges of robotic speech, having successfully used investment to double the team and demonstrated a strong team ethos.”

The startup, which was previously on the Accelerate Cambridge programme at the Cambridge Judge Entrepreneurship Centre, now supports 75 languages – from widely spoken languages such as Japanese, Russian and Hindi to rare languages like Ilocano, Urdu or Aymara.

More than 300 submissions were received for this year’s awards, which took place on 19 June 2018 at Liverpool Cathedral. The awards “recognise outstanding achievement, identifying some of the most innovative and disruptive businesses across the UK and the angel and early-stage investors that have backed them.”
