Opportunities in the Metaverse

2 February 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The promise of a 3D interactive world is not something new, nor is the term metaverse which was originally coined in the 1990’s. Today’s metaverse market opportunity is the convergence of a range of technology innovations (visualization, AI, bandwidth, processors, cloud, blockchain, etc) to provide substantial and financially impactful change in digital experiences and digital marketplaces.

Large amounts of venture capital and BigTech company investments in the space are seeing rapid advancement in next generation solutions. We are seeing the transformative effects initially in games (like Fortnite, Pokemon Go) and digital media (NFTs, virtual concerts, new fan experiences) but these changes will impact education, the workplace, commerce, marketing and communications in ways we are only beginning to understand.

This event will explain the terminology, the market potential, business models and investment dynamics in this field that promises to be the next big wave of investment and innovation over the next decade. We’ll then dive into an understanding of the commercialization pathway for these innovations by interviewing a seasoned entrepreneur at the leading edge: James Hursthouse.
