xLab - Building Digital Intelligence 

xLab at Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management is an innovative program that partners legacy and industrial native companies with CWRU’s tech-savvy students to help companies understand, adopt and implement new business models to compete in the new digital economy.

For manufacturers in Northeast Ohio and throughout the Midwest, this is a critical time. xLab’s mission is to position companies for success in a competitive digital world and help them to realize the value and revenue from digital assets. For CWRU students, this is an invaluable opportunity to work on a real-world project. 

The Innovation Research Fund was established to provide internships offering a unique experiential learning project where students develop their own intellectual property while helping our region’s economy. It also supports students working with not-for-profits and cities that don't have the resources to pay for xLab projects. To that end, xLab is seeking to raise $3,000 by Feb. 28 in support of this fund.

Your investment in xLab and the Innovation Research Fund will allow a multidisciplinary group of student interns from the Weatherhead School of Management and Case School of Engineering and a project coach to help a company with a high-level digital innovation challenge they are facing. CWRU students, who understand tech and digital, will create a prototype for a digital innovation to address the challenge.

While technology companies and some industries are thriving in the digital economy, legacy companies have struggled to make the shift from physical-first to digital-first. The onset of COVID-19 is forcing companies to embrace digital transformation to survive and prepare for the post-crisis new normal. Programs such as xLab, and the Innovation Research Fund, help prepare CWRU students to immediately close gaps in the emerging economy.
