"If you are trying to do something that is a little bit unusual or niche in the resources and mining sector, Unearthed is hands down the only Accelerator in the world which is suited to you."
Co-founder, Canaria and Unearthed Accelerator Alumna
"None of this could have been achieved without the huge effort and support from Unearthed. In the early days, the capital and mentorship enabled us to focus ourselves on identifying the right problems. The support network of champions and advisors enabled us to take control over other measures, and finally, and most importantly, the morale and emotional support that the team gave us throughout the journey, especially through the hard times was critical."
Co-Founder, Newton Labs and Unearthed Accelerator Alumnus
"The Accelerator itself has had a number of benefits for us. It has been an awesome opportunity for our mentors to engage and energise as a development activity. It has helped us make connections internally. Sometimes the products that were less suited to our upstream business were better suited to our energy markets business. It has provided us access to new ideas."
General Manager, Strategy and Execution, Origin
"The Unearthed Accelerator challenged us to take a step back and look at the core principles of our service, and then apply that to other industry verticals. So, since starting the program we have delivered projects within the oil and gas sector overseas in Papua New Guinea, and we are receiving a lot of inbound inquiries from international resources companies who are wanting to work with us, which is exciting."
Co-founder, SiteSee and Unearthed Accelerator Alumnus
"When we looked at the various industry applications of our tech, we saw an opportunity in the comparatively shorter path to market in the resources sector. We are really excited to be working with Unearthed, as in London there aren’t many mining companies. The access to industry that Unearthed can provide in Australia is paramount."
