The DesignTech Hub is born within the new Milan Innovation District (MIND) with the mission to design a better everyday life for people and planet.
A new vibrant innovation ecosystem, at the heart of the Italian design court, that brings together under one roof a powerful cohort of innovators and industry professionals for a design more connected with the future of living.
We promote open innovation programs integrating startups that want to accelerate their growth and industry leaders in search of innovation leveraging Milan and MIND’s resources.
Innovation Living Lab
The DesignTech Hub represents a world-class living lab destination for the innovation ecosystem when the theme is design, to shape and implement a transformative vision for the sector.
Dedicated facilities such as coworking and cofactory designed to support rapid prototyping of new circular and digitally enabled design solutions from corporates and startups.
We support our corporate partners to initiate and run successful pilot collaborations with startups, by creating a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that can validate the proposed new solution within MIND and then scale, providing workplace and infrastructure, as well as mentoring over a period of 3 to 6 months.
Do you have a product to test or promote?
Companies can send us products to be tested. Our community is built around early adopters that tend to be very active on social media.
Our sponsors get highly focused feedback and promotion, and we enjoy the future before anybody else.
