    The New Customer Meta Journey Disrupting Supply Chain

    The Metaverse is a 3D virtual world in which everyone can live experiences in real-time - work, interact, trade, play - through an avatar. It opens up a new exchange channel between companies, and customers, making it possible to interact with virtual products from the real world or before they materialize. So how will the Metaverse change how we interact with customers and vendors, and what does it mean for freight, logistics, and supply chain?

    The Future Supply Chain Planning

    Now that just about everything else is becoming virtual, would you like to view your entire supply chain on your laptop or VR goggles? There are millions of variables and points of failure in any supply chain. Humans can't predict and respond to these events on time. Therefore visualization is excellent, but not if you have to visualize tens of millions of variables. The solution: Creating a virtual supply chain (VSC).

  • How Do We Curate An Innovation Journey? 

    MatchlabN Innovation Journeys are customized based on the real challenges of our attendees. Our cohorts typically have up to 20 Executive Leaders to create an intimate space that fosters knowledge sharing, business opportunities, and potential partnerships. We use a proven 4-step MatchlabN process: 


    Innovation Radar

    In our onboarding kick-off session, we will discuss the key themes and goals of the Innovation Journey.



    Based on the pre-defined Innovation Radar, MatchlabN starts scouting for exciting technology startups.



    The most interesting startups become the program around which MatchlabN organizes the schedule and logistics.


    Innovation Journey

    We will visit five startups, including an immersive VR experience, a "Lunch & Learn", and debrief dinner at the end of the day.

  • "(...) The Innovation Journey was one of the best things I've ever participated in"

    Alex Lennane, publisher, journalist and director at The Loadster

    The Loadster published a series of short articles about the startups we met in Silicon Valley, looking at new technologies potentially suitable for the industry.

  • Why Miami?

    The "Magic City" is the new tech mecca for NFT & Web 3

    broken image

    Miami has long been renowned as a global hub of art and culture. But over the last decade, the city's innovation and enterprising reputation have not only grown, but it has become the new tech mecca for NFT and Web 3. As the "gateway to Latin America," it's no wonder more entrepreneurs worldwide are starting to move west because of Miami's diversity, lifestyle, bohemian culture, and community. The Magic City is now a major innovation center for blockchain, NFT, and Web 3. As a result, Miami is the perfect startup ecosystem for our participants to host a Metaverse Innovation Journey.
