Location mapping service what3words, featured in the Startups Top 20 2013, has been shortlisted alongside 15 other emerging tech businesses for the Tech Startup 10 competition.
An initiative offering 10 early-stage tech start-ups the chance to win free exhibition space at the upcoming Interop London event, the 16 finalists includes companies from the UK, America, France, USA, Ukraine, Israel and France.
Launched in July 2013, what3words offers an ‘alternative to postcodes’ solution whereby it uses a unique system of three-word codes to pinpoint any location on the globe – users can purchase the words to represent their address.

Each winner will receive an exhibition package worth £7000 and will showcase their products at the Interop conference which is taking place from June 16 to June 18 at ExCeL London as part of London Technology Week.
The shortlisted companies are as follows:
- Cirrus Cloud
