Komatsu 2018: Transform Mining Hackathon

February 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Calling all Startups and Innovators

Komatsu are looking for startups and entrepreneurs with impactful technologies, to collaborate with and support the ongoing development of their IP.

At the end of the weekend one team will win a trip to one of Komatsu’s global sites, relevant to their technology.

$10,000 in cash prizes is also up for grabs.

You retain all your IP!

Understand your customer

Throughout the weekend Komatsu will be presenting 4 major problems they are facing. Mentors and personnel from across the business will provide deep insights into their current operations, technology gaps, implementation and integration, and future vision.

Pitch your product or tech

At the start of the weekend you’ll pitch your current product or technology. Receive in-depth, honest feedback from Komatsu on how this might integrate with their current and future vision.

Prototype your engagement

This is a hackathon with a twist! Over the weekend, the prototype you’ll be working on is your engagement model. This is your chance to show how your technology can impact Komatsu’s business and what you need to achieve that. Constant engagement throughout the weekend with Komatsu mentors and business experts will provide you with all you need to plan your implementation, integration, site trials and business plan.

Who Should Participate?

Startups & Entrepreneurs

Komatsu: Transform Mining is open to anyone but we encourage startups, entrepreneurs, and researchers ready for collaboration and for continued development of their products to apply. If you’re a startup, this might be your big break or opportunity to access a new industry.


Want to come along to watch the magic as it happens? The prime time for observers will be Friday night during event kick off and Sunday evening for presentations and prizes.
