About United Design Center: In order to better drive x-lab entrepreneurs’ innovation and creativity through nurturing, integrated thinking and experiential learning, x-lab launched the United Design Center in April 2014. The United Design Center’s mission is to integrate design thinking into the project nurturing system and reinforce the competitiveness of the innovation driven entrepreneurial projects.

To accomplish its goals, x-lab United Design Center brings together resources both from the academia and industry - experts and the practitioners who have successfully applied design thinking to their product offering and business, and continue to do so. Together with the Academy of Arts and Design, x-lab United Design Center aims to improve the project nurturing system by sponsoring courses, lectures, and workshops, and providing one-on-one consultation and mentoring sessions to ex-lab entrepreneurs. The United Design Center also explores a new model for placing design interns with the entrepreneurial teams to work alongside the professional in mentors.
