Delighted to have been invited as a guest on Marc Petit and Patrick Cozzi’s podcast, Building the Open Metaverse. We delved into the future of Roblox and Fortnite, discuss how these platforms shape immersive social spaces and how users and creators embrace the metaverse.
In this episode I also share my journey to becoming a pioneer in the metaverse through platforms like Roblox, and discuss how young people today are "metaverse native," immersed in virtual worlds and using avatars to socialize.
From the hosts:
[Yon’s] company, Supersocial, builds virtual experiences for brands on Roblox and Fortnite Creative. He sees these platforms emerging as leaders, with interoperability between them unlikely in the near future.
He believes virtual worlds will empower entrepreneurship for young people to build businesses and make money. His advice for entrepreneurs is to understand your "why," tap into your passion, and find your differentiator.
For brands, [Yon] emphasizes the importance of consistency, understanding your audience, and bringing diverse voices. Ultimately, he hopes the metaverse will spread joy, self-expression, and advance humanity.
Yon is the founder of CEO of Supersocial, an innovator and leading developer, publisher and technology company focused on virtual worlds. Thank you for subscribing to Into The Metaverse. We grow when readers who appreciate our work spread the word.
