Riccardo Donadon H-FARM

H-FARM is an innovative platform supporting the development of new business models, digital transformation of companies, and education for young people to prepare them to future challenges.

Born in January 2005, it was the first platform in Italy to adopt a model which joined in the same place investments, consulting, and fast-pacing programs, by producing an ecosystem whose value and uniqueness are obtained just through an ongoing exchange of experiences and competencies. Since its foundation, H-FARM has invested more than 28 million euros to fund more than 120 start-ups.

It collaborates with the most important brands worldwide and develops about two-thousand students a year in three international schools with digital equipment, a professional school, and academic programs including BA, specializations, and MA executive programs. H-FARM’s main office and campus are in Ca’ Tron (Treviso), in an old farming estate in the Natural Park of Sile, near Venice. The 51-hectare campus, with 28 of them open to the public, is the largest and most important innovation hub in Europe and may host up to 3 thousand people.

With its offices in Milan, Turin, and Catania and three schools in Treviso, Vicenza, and Rosà, H-FARM employs 600 people. Since 13 November 2005, it has been quoted within the Aim segment (devoted to small to medium enterprises) of the Italian Stock Exchange.
