Trint has been named as National Winner in the 2019 European Business Awards, one of world’s largest and longest-running business competitions.

Trint was chosen from 2,753 businesses named as Ones to Watch in a list of business excellence published in July and selected as a National Winner by a panel of independent judges including business leaders, politicians and academics. It is the best business in the United Kingdom in the category New Business of the Year and will now go on to represent the UK in the final stage of the competition.

Hailed as an “unprecedented voice transcription technology” by Wired, Trint uses AI to convert recorded audio and video to text with up to 99% accuracy rates. Its enterprise and team clients include The Associated Press, Reuters, America’s Test Kitchen, The Washington Post, Vice News and Der Spiegel. Trint was founded by Jeff Kofman, an Emmy-winning broadcast journalist and war correspondent with ABC, CBS, and CBC, who estimates he manually transcribed thousands of hours of audio during his more than 30 years in television news.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “This is a significant achievement and Trint is an outstanding leader in their field. To be chosen as a National Winner means you show great innovation, ethics and success and are one of the best businesses in Europe. We wish Trint the best of luck in the final round.”

Companies on the Ones to Watch list come from all sectors, from manufacturing to retail, agriculture to technology; and all sizes, from start-ups to billion-euro businesses.

Trint will now have the chance to compete in one of the 18 categories of this year’s European Business Awards to become a National Winner in their country. If successful, they will then take part in the Gala Final in December 2019, where the final 18 European winners will be announced.

The European Business Awards is now in its 12th year. Last year it considered over 111,000 businesses from 34 countries. Sponsors and partners include Inflexion, Germany Trade & Invest and PR Newswire.
