This firm’s technology makes texting easier: it learns how we type to speed up text prediction on our smartphones and tablets. Last year the SwiftKey app spent more days as Google Play’s No 1 paid download than any other, and it is available in more than 65 languages. Chief executive Jon Reynolds, 27, started the firm with university friend Ben Medlock, 34, in 2008 and 2013 revenues are expected to be greater than $10m. Earlier this month the firm completed a £11.3m funding round, led by new investor, Index Ventures. It has offices in London, San Franscico, Beijing and Seoul.
