Guest: Chris Sheldrick, Co-Founder, CEO, what3words GPS navigation has changed the way we find our destinations. Who even gives directions anymore? But what if you’re trying to find a house in a brand-new neighborhood that Google hasn’t mapped yet? Or what about those times when you’re in a huge crowd, trying to tell your friend where to find you? “I’m left of the speakers, about two-thirds back from the stage. I’m wearing a red shirt.” Or what if – and this is a lot more serious – what if, like billions of people in the developing world, you have no address. How do emergency services or deliveries find you? Without a precise address, you’re in some ways . . . invisible. Chris Sheldrick wants to give an address – a specific label - to every single location on Earth.
