The winning teams from these events may be offered one of only 10 places in the Unearthed accelerator. The accelerator is an intense 6-month long program that will help form new startup companies and connect them to industry mentors and customers on their journey from prototype to product. Participating companies will each receive $70,000 in seed investment to help them bring innovative new products to the resources sector.
