what3words fought off stiff competition from the other nominees – ranging from AI computing and deep learning software to 3D printed bionic hands. This recognition is testament to the real world potential of what3words, to improve the lives of billions around the globe.

Jane Bown, sponsorship and events Manager of Audi UK, said: “what3words has found a solution to the problem of accurately and memorably addressing the entire world, a breakthrough that, in its own way, is as important as the moon landings.”
