The gateway to a new world of opportunity


Why the metaverse is a massive opportunity for companies to get diversity right

The metaverse offers an extraordinary opportunity for a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) reset. Companies have the chance to incorporate accessibility and diversity principles from the start, rather than bolting them on later. Explore questions for leaders.

The metaverse is where the physical and virtual worlds connect

As the next iteration of the internet, the metaverse is not a product or a single technology. It’s a gateway—a new way of interacting and a driver of transformation across economic and social spheres.

The interconnected opportunities the metaverse offers are staggering, with implications on transactions, business models, security and knowledge across markets and sectors. Gartner predicts the longer-term revenue potential of the metaverse to be $30 trillion—nearly a third of the current global economy.

The evolution of human interaction

The metaverse will change your business. Understanding how will be key to long-term success.

The metaverse is here. And it’s a gateway to a world of new opportunity.

The metaverse is not a single technology but instead an evolution of physical and digital experiences: virtual worlds, currencies, tokens, digital assets, emerging technologies, and more.

Gamers have been playing in the metaverse for years in imaginary worlds, exchanging digital currencies and purchasing virtual goods.

The metaverse and Web3 are becoming a new driver of transformation in the workplace. Multinational technology companies and cloud-based software companies have embraced the metaverse experience, allowing people to explore, learn, and shop in ways that were impossible just a few years ago.

Now the metaverse is expanding far beyond the world of gaming and making its way into professional services with real implications on transactions, business models, security, and knowledge.

This rapidly changing landscape brings bountiful opportunities, but uncertainty, confusion, and risk can make the journey into the possible overwhelming.

Is your company prepared to move confidently into what Gartner predicts to be a 30 trillion-dollar metaverse market?

KPMG is uniquely positioned to help clients navigate and fully realize the opportunities that this digital transformation represents.

Imagine, attending a workshop that can be held in both a physical and virtual environment for increased engagement and interactivity.

The multiple assets produced within the session, including the design, data, interviews, and illustrations can be packaged together and delivered to the attendee as an NFT token.

That token can then be used as a secure and traceable access point to the deliverables built on the blockchain.

Finally, payments for services can be made in crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more.

This is just one example of the innovative, interconnected opportunities the metaverse can bring.

Understanding how the metaverse, alongside Web3, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and blockchain will impact your business will be key to long-term success.

Companies that fail to evolve along with the opportunities that the metaverse provides will be left behind.
