One of the world’s largest consulting firms KPMG, has announced that two of its subsidiaries, KPMG U.S. and KPMG Canada are going to launch the first KPMG metaverse collaboration hub.
Employees, clients and communities will connect, engage and explore opportunities for growth across industries and sectors in the metaverse.
“The unique experience provided by our collaboration hub will tap the creativity and passion of our people and clients to accelerate innovation,” said Laura Newinski, deputy chair and chief operating officer at KPMG U.S.
Both the firms have developed dedicated teams to provide both strategic and technical support across the metaverse ecosystem, including metaverse design, use cases of NFTs, crypto assets, community engagement and broader Web 3.0 integrations.
Elio Luongo, chief executive officer and senior partner at KPMG in Canada said, “Launching a collaborative space in the metaverse is a natural evolution in our journey as an innovation-driven firm.”
Both the firms have recently taken several crypto-based initiatives. KPMG Canada included Bitcoin & Ether to its corporate treasury. Later on the Canadian firm also purchased an NFT from the World of Women digital art collection.
Both KPMG U.S. and KPMG Canada have begun integrating Chain Fusion, a tool that provides audit services for financial services, fintech and crypto-native companies.
Both the firms will continue to innovate and explore the crypto and Web 3.0 space as part of their strategic innovation roadmap.
