The Metaverse
In many ways, the physical world is extremely constraining.
Today, where you live dictates:
An avatar with a speech bubble says "If you can work at the company that excites you most."An avatar with a speech bubble says "Whether you can access certain educational opportunities."
An avatar with a speech bubble says "Which friends or family you stay close to."
Gather’s mission is to remove these constraints from people’s lives.
We do this by building the Metaverse, a virtual layer over the physical world
where people can work, socialize, and learn.
Gather's role in the Metaverse
Since we launched in May of 2020, Gather has brought millions of people together.
With our creation tools, users are able to build their own custom, interactable spaces.
Five labels expressing examples of the types of Spaces you can have on Gather: Virtual offices, birthday parties, university campuses, conferences, and weddings.
At Gather, we believe in
Being mission obsessed
The sole purpose of Gather is to build the best Metaverse for humanity.
Aligned incentives
History has shown that unaligned business models lead to profit at the cost of the user’s well-being.
Value creation
Society gets the most value out of a Metaverse that is a free, open platform, much like the Internet. Gather aims to capture only a small fraction of the value we create.
Building for everyone
The Metaverse should not discriminate based off of your background or identity.
