The Shortlisted Nominees for the BOLD Awards 2020

The Shortlisted Nominees for the BOLD Awards 2020




The first round of online public voting has now ended and we are delighted to share the names of the final nominees in each of the 12 categories of 2020’s annual BOLD Awards.

The online votes that were cast will count for 50% of the final decisions, and the introduction of our international panel of judges to the process will also account for 50% of the overall selection of winners. Judges will evaluate each nominee on the basis of Level of Impact 40%, Scalability 30%, Transparency 20%, and H-factor 10% (Human & Social).

Our aim is to recognise and champion the companies, projects and individuals powering BOLD breakthroughs around the world. Pursuing incremental advances is important and valuable, though it means people remain grounded in what already exists. Whereas aiming for a 10x gain rather than a 10% improvement requires bravery and creativity to be truly innovative.

Working with our event partner H-FARM, the final award ceremony will be a gala dinner held at their campus in Venice, Italy, on March 27. Attendance is limited mainly to the award winners, category sponsors and some of our corporate partners and investors, though a few tickets remain available to spend a unique evening in their company.

The global Covid pandemic meant the BOLD Awards 2020 were unble to be completed. The gala dinner award ceremony will be combined with BOLD Awards 2021, hosted by H-FARM, and take place on their campus in Venice, Italy, on March 25, 2022.
