Unearthed hackathons connect an international community of talented innovators to some of the most exciting challenges faced by industry. Entrepreneurs and innovators come together to work on propriety industry data to develop prototype solutions to resources sector problems.
Data scientists and innovators around the world compete to build the best solutions to complex industry problems and win substantial cash bounties. Industry supporters leverage the power of the crowd to source the top algorithms.
The Unearthed accelerator helps promising founders bring new technology products to global markets. Participating startups receive seed funding, mentorship from industry leaders, and connection to customers. Industry partners have first access to new products that improve efficiency and competitiveness.
Applications for the 2018 program are open.
“We recognise that people with no mining or resources experience can bring valuable insights to solving challenges the industry faces. We’re excited to partner with Unearthed to tap into Western Australia’s innovation community in pursuit of more efficient, effective and safer ways to work.”
