A sound relationship

We meet Chairman, Andrew Fisher, to find out how Shazam is continuing to innovate. 

The vision for Shazam is to help people recognise and engage with the world around them.

Shazam began in 2002 and now has offices in London, America and Australia.

Today Shazam connects more than 1 billion people worldwide.

Barclays is prepared to be flexible, work with us as a team and they believe in our company. In terms of the future, the way we view Barclays is as a trusted partner who can really help us get to the scale that we are looking to achieve.

Andrew Fisher


Shazam continues to innovate, extending beyond audio recognition to image and visual recognition to make it easier for consumers to engage with brands.

Understanding the scale in which Shazam were looking to grow, Barclays created a new venture debt facility specific to their business needs enabling them to expand globally at rapid pace.
