Crowdsourcing Week and H-FARM have joined forces for a second year to organize BOLD, the most innovative Awards program which will culminate in a black-tie award ceremony hosted in Venice, Italy at H-FARM’s campus on March 27th, 2020. This event was created to unravel the unlimited human potential for innovation and creativity, providing the necessary tools and information that innovators need for taking action.
BOLD Awards 2020 will showcase innovation and trends from businesses and individuals within a diverse range of industries covering Open Innovation, Crowdsourcing, Advertising, Robotics, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Science, Space Frontier, Travel Blogger & Influencer, Marketplaces, AI, Fintech and Agrotech.
BOLD Awards is aiming to engage more than 3,000 global nominees from the public and private sector, with only the top 60 being selected to join us in Venice, Italy, on March 27th, 2020.
Projects will be evaluated on the following criteria: Level of Impact 40%, Scalability 30%, Transparency 20%, H-Factor 10% (Human & Social).
An initial stage of online public voting will see nominees’ submissions voted on by their peers. The short-listed BOLD nominees will then be assessed by an outstanding panel of international judges made up of entrepreneurs and business leaders from leading industries, plus media and academics across four continents. The winners in each category will be expected to attend the award ceremony in Venice.
Submissions are now open and will close on December 31st, 2019. Submitting a project carries a fee of €47 until November 11, 2019. After this date, late submissions will be charged €107. Out of these fees, €5 per entry will go to H for Human Foundation to facilitate access to education, encouraging young people to follow their passions.
H-FARM is an innovation platform that supports the creation of new business models and the digital transformation and education of young people and companies.

H-FARM has over 600 employees working in 5 locations across Italy, an office in Barcelona, and is considered unique on an international level.
