UX Accelerator

UX Accelerator

Usability and User Experience (UX) are critical components of any digital product or service. Only by addressing the true needs of users and by providing a seamless experience, a new business can be successful on the market and compete against similar offerings. However, a good user experience doesn’t happen by accident. It is the result of careful planning, analysis, investment, and continuous improvement. PwC recognizes the need for this and supports the TechQuartier community by providing a UX accelerator program including lab equipment and methodological support for enabling startups to conduct their own UX research and experiments with users.
