The Grid offers a comprehensive system of infrastructure, consumer features, tools, and services that allows any organization to provide its own unique immersive experience in the world’s largest interconnected virtual world.

The viability of Second Life as a virtual realm has been explored by organizations and companies through various ways, such as showing of documentaries, holding of conferences, virtual land/property, advertising platforms, a virtual economy that can extend into real life, and even for activism or radicalism.

Second Life will remain focused on residents, while Linden Lab has offered various programs for organizations that wish to explore opportunities in virtual worlds, such as through the The Community Gateway Program, Global Provider Program and other Second Life API-based programs.
