Decentralization: Maleh’s view for Valtech clients
“Decentralization is the future of the internet and Valtech's focus on mixed reality work, metaverse (though I’m not a fan of the term), Web3, and more, follows the industry’s shift in focus. Part of my job, and what piques my curiosity, is anticipating changes and trends and guiding our clients accordingly. We work with our clients to take calculated risks and create technology with a purpose. Breaking the mold and striking the balance between tech-driven innovations and realistic business outcomes, is really what Valtech is all about and is the innovative practice that gets me excited.”.
