Chris Sheldrick

The CEO and Founder What3Words.

I went against the grain to raise over £100m, change human behaviour, and build a new global address system, now used by major car brands, e-commerce platforms, and emergency services globally 23 Jan 2023

The simplest way to talk about location. Street addresses aren’t accurate enough to specify precise locations, such as building entrances, and don’t exist for parks and many rural areas. This makes it hard to find places and prevents people from describing exactly where help is needed in an emergency. That’s why we created what3words.

Thousands of businesses use what3words to improve efficiencies and customer experience – from e-commerce and logistics companies to travel, ride-hailing and navigation apps.

Future Facing

We’re providing the location precision and simplicity needed by drones, voice-controlled devices and driverless cars.

Supporting life-saving services

Around the world, emergency services and NGOs are using Whats3words to find and help people in need.
