Recent Cases

The Mining Hub was created with the purpose of being a direct channel for open innovation, social projects, industry trends and the relationship between mining companies and technology-based initiatives. The project occupies one of the WeWork floors in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), where executives from the 22 participating mining companies, as well as suppliers, the IBRAM team and Neo Ventures, are located. The environment aims to generate opportunities and connections for different players in the mining chain, such as the mining companies themselves, as well as suppliers, startups, researchers and investors.
