Fintech company goes office-free and moves its team to the Metaverse

Metaverse, 1 April 2022 – CFTE’s Co-Founders decide to shut down their physical offices in London and Singapore to move their entire team into the workspace of the future – The Metaverse. The move comes as CFTE’s research into the Metaverse reveals trends and predictions of this new experiential economy taking off, as physical worlds converge into a new virtual reality. The on-going health crisis, the growing need for excellent talent across the globe and the economic benefit for employers and employees, all point towards taking a step in this new direction.

We at CFTE believe that being present in the Metaverse is imperative and inevitable. We want to be forerunners in this space and take the leap into the future by moving the CFTE team and all company operations into the Metaverse. This means that CFTE will shut down both physical offices in London at Canary Wharf and Singapore at 80 Robinson Road. To make the shift into an online workspace, CFTE has bought virtual land in the Sandbox and created a fully furnished virtual office for employees to benefit from. CFTE will provide their staff with an Oculus Quest, so they can fully immerse themselves into this new virtual world.
What CFTE employees received this month, Oculus Quest.

CFTE’s Co-founders believe that the benefits of moving to the Metaverse are inimitable by a physical office. The ongoing global pandemic and social distancing norms make the decision to jump ship logical. But other benefits like lower operational costs by slashing a 500 GPB monthly rent per person at a physical office, and replacing it with a one-time investment in a 300 GBP Oculus Quest per employee, is the perfect way to create a lean organisation. Apart from this, CFTE’s operates in the Fintech and Digital Finance space, which means there is a dire need to source talent that is highly skilled from beyond a single country’s borders. The flexibility that the Metaverse provides for global teams to come together and collaborate is immense.

CFTE’s new virtual office in the Metaverse is furnished with a mix of social and workspaces. From a levitating conference room over the Thames to an infinity pool that overlooks the city, the office has all the facilities you need and more to help employees make the most of their workday. CFTE will be talking all interactions and meetups with clients, partners, experts and Alumni into the Metaverse as well.

CFTE believes that the future of work and education is in the Metaverse. Our future projects and programmes in the pipeline are all aligned with this new normal. Going forward, all professionals hired by CFTE will have no restrictions on where they choose to work from, all they need is their Oculus Quest, which will be provided by the company. Since CFTE has always chosen to take on pioneering projects in the EdTech space, the next step would be to simulate completely virtual and immersive learning environments through the Metaverse. We hope to see more companies taking this route, as it is and will be the next frontier for the digital world.

“I think moving the CFTE team to the Metaverse is a stroke of genius. It opens up new possibilities to collaborate with a global team with nearly zero cost of commuting and travel.”, Urvi, Meta-Marketing Associate.

“CFTE Community is global. The Metaverse is the best way to connect the ecosystem at a central place. We look forward to onboard our alumni and experts at our virtual office in the next few days” Paul, Meta-Marketing Lead.

Since the beginning, CFTE has always been proactive in testing and researching in that field. See below CFTE initiatives in the metaverse:
