The Future of Work in the Metaverse: Business and Career Opportunities By Sammi Wei

Metaverse Opportunities Part 1

Why attend?

Most of us were already living out a good chunk of our lives in the metaverse long before the term popularized headlines last year. In this two-part series, Sammi will first bridge the gaps in understanding between what you already know and what you haven’t yet experienced about the metaverse, then equip you with the knowledge and resources to explore business and career opportunities in this exciting future.

Who is this for?

You have heard the word “metaverse” too many times but nobody has ever properly explained what it is to you, and Google Search just made you more confused. You are excited, perhaps even slightly scared, by this next stage of the internet age. But above all, you are curious and eager to learn more about how to participate in this future. Whether you want to be an entrepreneur, investor, developer, community builder, or contributor in any capacity, the Future of Work has a place for you.

What will be covered in Part 1?

More likely than not, you are already familiar with many tools one could consider as part of the metaverse, this introductory session will bridge the gap of understanding between what you already know and what you haven’t yet experienced about the metaverse.
