Back in 2007 Cosmano Lombardo, Giorgio Taverniti and Andrea Pernici, eager to understand and properly use technological tools introduced by the digital transformation, founded Search On Media Group, a corporate that has always been based on accessibility and on education, with the aim of creating a positive socio-economic impact in the digital realm.
Education, Consulting and Networking are Search On Media Groups' core businesses - the group constantly undertakes to find and offer innovative solutions and approaches to be provided to all the stakeholders interested in generating value through the use of digital technologies.
Search On Media Group commits at boosting cooperation among entities operating in the Italian market and abroad, merging together educational and consulting goals, promoting Digital & Social Innovation, spreading digital knowledge and creating a strong international network.
To achieve this pioneering goal the group carries out educational and professional events and projects throughout the Italian peninsula, involving companies, startups, research centers, institutions, schools, NPOs and many more.
The company's leading project is WMF - an educational, cultural and innovation accelerator that soon became the biggest Festival about Digital & Social Innovation in Europe.
The first edition of WMF was carried out back in 2013; it was a one day event organised in Rome. Over the years the company has gained more and more experience, enhancing its reputation and widening its network, in fact today WMF hosts more than 21 thousands attendees and addresses social and digital innovation topics such as: sustainability, education, research, digital transformation, health, accessibility, entrepreneurship and so on.
To make this project even more wide-ranging, WMF has decided to carry out several international events about Social & Digital Innovation in the rest of the world, partnering with different foreign partners in several Countries, reaching out to 5 Continents. These events take the name of Worldwide Events.
To kick-off the pre-mentioned international journey, WMF is carrying out its Startup Competition abroad - the WMF Startup Competition Greece.
