Each year Unearthed sets a global program to drive and accelerate innovation in the resources sector. This program comprises Hackathon events that are aimed at feeding the beginning of a community focused on delivering innovation. The Unearthed Hackathon will continue to provide an initial touch point at which resource companies can come to engage with top software developers, data scientists, designers, engineers and other similarly skilled innovators. For participants in the hackathon, the opportunities are massive. Prototypes built at an Unearthed hackathon are wholly owned by the team, providing those individuals with a starting ground to progress onto stages such as startup foundation or product commercialisation, amongst other opportunities.
