CORE Resources Innovation Hub launching in July 2016
Western Australia, sharing the same timezone with 60% of the world’s population, has crafted the reputation for being a world leader in mining, oil and gas and agriculture. However, in the last two years, the mining boom has lessened considerably, demanding new, innovative ways to disrupt, refresh and re-engage the industry.

The potential to sustain the economy now the mining boom is over, is there to be seized, but how do we focus our efforts on taking these business opportunities in the most efficient way possible?
Spacecubed has been supporting a community of entrepreneurs and innovators over the past four years making inroads into providing sustainability and growth for a diverse range of local businesses.
During which time, Unearthed has scaled their hackathon and challenge programme internationally, aimed at solving some of the biggest challenges facing the resources sector today.
Both companies have now joined to establish CORE - Perth’s dedicated space for innovation in the resources sector.
Surrounded by some of the world’s leading resources and technology companies, CORE is Perth’s technology and knowledge hub for entrepreneurs, operators, suppliers and researchers to connect and collaborate on innovative resource challenges. These companies will serve as advisors, mentors, investors and customers, making CORE a place where resources-focused technology startups form, develop and thrive.
Located at FLUX, 191 St Georges Terrace, the industry specific space supports the vision of WA as a global resources innovation hub. It’s a place where resources-focused technology startups, businesses and industry leaders can thrive, experiment and find new solutions to complex problems innovatively.
This is a dedicated space and network for entrepreneurs, companies, service providers and researchers to co-locate, collaborate and innovatively find solutions out of critical problems faced by the resources industry in Australia and globally today.
