H-FARM is an innovation platform which supports the creation of new business models, as well as the digital transformation and education of young people and Italian companies. Founded in January 2005, H-FARM was the first in the world to adopt a model that brought together education, investments, and business consultancy in one place.
Since its founding until today, H-FARM has invested €27,3M to support the development of over a hundred innovative companies, has helped 200 of the most important international brands take advantage of the opportunities made possible by digital transformation and educates more than 1.000 students through an international and digital didactic path.
Structured like a campus, it is destined to become the most important innovation hub in Europe and is currently undergoing an expansion that will grow its facilities from 14,000 mq of buildings with a 20-hectare park to 42,000 mq of buildings distributed over 51 hectares of land close to Venice. H-FARM employs more than 600 people in 5 different locations in Italy and is considered a singularity at an international level. BOLD Awards will be hosted in the events room and the evening will continue on the terrace together with lots of surprises.
