The team behind The Sandbox, a decentralized virtual world, has partnered with World of Women (WoW) and launched the WoW Foundation, with The Sandbox funding $25 million over five years for key developments. They will also create new online experiences. As a result, expect to see the inclusion of 10,000 World of Women 3D interoperable avatars, a WoW Museum, a WoW University, and an incubator at the Wow Academy. The WoW University’s program offers free online lessons on how to get started In Web 3.0. Those who complete the lessons will receive a certified NFT diploma.

“We are thrilled to be teaming up with The Sandbox. With this grant, we are going to establish our mission in the metaverse, by leading and supporting women in this new space. We will start by voxelizing all 10,000 WoW so that our entire community can join us there. Then, we’ll achieve our mission through numerous actions; such as the opening of the WoW Museum, which will be a symbol of representation and diversity in the metaverse. We have great projects ahead, and are looking forward to achieving them with our community in The Sandbox,” said Yam Karkai, artist and co-founder of World of Women.

“This partnership signals our intent to invest long term in shaping a diverse and inclusive space for women to thrive in Web3 within our metaverse. Through facilitating the education and funding of women’s projects we hope these programs help establish a generation of influential women builders in the space,” added Sebastien Borget, co-founder and COO of The Sandbox.
