The Mining Lab Challenge program was created to support initiatives of entrepreneurs who wish to develop technological innovation projects for the mining and metallurgy industry.

Initiatives of entrepreneurs around the world will be identified and connected, so they receive an equity-free investment, that is, an investment with no corporate counterpart.

Nexa aims at being a venture client, acting as a client of the initial producer instead of taking part in the capital of your company.
