Never ‘Met a Verse’ I Didn’t Like: Prospering and Capturing Opportunities in Web3

Join an interdisciplinary panel of Manatt professionals for the second of a three-part webinar series on the metaverse and the dawn of the Web3 era. This program will provide a closer look at how companies can engage in the metaverse and what they need to know to capture those opportunities, including as it relates to investments and financings, and buying real estate in the metaverse.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding, generally, what opportunities exist to engage in the metaverse and position your individual brand or emerging or established company to prosper in Web3
  • Lucrative examples of early movers and their success
  • Investment and financing opportunities, structuring, where the value is going to be created, and what obstacles you need to anticipate
  • Buying real estate in the metaverse, including the difference between “IRL” real estate and metaverse real estate, how these transactions work, and strategic and legal considerations
