Metaverse: A Must-Hear Primer on What’s Next

Entrepreneurs share two important distinctions – foresight and curiosity. We are driven by a simple question – “what if?” It comes so naturally; we often dismiss our own superpower- an endurance for the discomfort of not knowing. Tech Talks is designed as an opportunity to embrace it. Our recent roundtable – Blockchain: A boon or bust for your business? – was so well-received, we’re extending it to a meta exploration of the metaverse!

In this edition, Metaverse: A must-hear primer on what’s next (or now?) in business innovation, Thomas Willey, Digital COE, Dell and Allyson Downey, co-founder of Meta Angels stoke the curiosity in all of us. We’ll get ahead of the next human learning curve by discussing the what, why and how of metaverse and web 3.0, and explore its real-world impacts – and potential – for entrepreneurs.
