Plumbers, decorators and yoga teachers are some of the traders who use handheld payment terminals powered by tech from High Wycombe-based Miura. It was set up in 2008 by Ricky Garrido, who also founded Dione, a supplier of mobile payment machines. Last year it raised £11m from Draper Esprit to help overseas expansion. Distribution agreements with the US firms Square and PayPal, and the growth of contactless payments, helped sales hit £24.8m in 2015. Miura is led by interim chief executive Dan Salmons, 49.
