Demystifying the Metaverse: What it is and Why it Matters!
Introduction: Joe Harrington, Partner, PwC

Andrea Mower, Senior Manager, Metaverse Specialist, PwC
What is the metaverse and why does it matter to me and my business? The answer to this question varies on who is asking and what their goals are. We can break this down by investigating the technology landscape, how we got here today, where we are currently, and what is the trajectory forward. More importantly, focus will be spent on how the metaverse is currently impacting the financial sector and ways it can be leveraged today no matter your industry.
