16 - 17 - 18 JUNE 2022 / RIMINI EXPO CENTRE & ONLINE​​​​​​​

For International Scaleups​​​​​​​


At WMF 2022, set to be from 16 to 18 June at the Rimini Expo Centre, Italy, will return the Scale Up For Future event that compares 6 scaleups from all over the world in a dedicated panel on the Mainstage.

WMF has always been a moment of gathering for the inovation world thanks to the many events for startups and scaleups held as part of the World Startup Fest and designed to support the development of innovative Italian and international business projects. Taken together, each of these initiatives contributes to the expansion of the Innovation Valley: the innovative ecosystem connected and open to the whole world that promotes opportunities for discussion between citizens, startups, stakeholders and institutions.


The 2022 Call - now closed

After the success of the last edition which saw the participation on the Mainstage of scale up such as Sumup, FoodPanda, PatchAI, Bidroom, Content Square and Revolut, the WMF reopens the call for Scale Up For Future.

Innovative - digital and tecnologial - entrepreneurial projects from all over the world are fre to apply which, by proposing a scalable and repeatable business model, have rapidly scaled the reference markets.

The 3 scale ups selected by the WMF innovation team will have the opportunity to present their fast growing business through pitches and open discussions within a live round table, at the Rimini Expo Centre and in streaming, on the Festival Mainstage.
