unisys-wsl-logo-smallWEST CHESTER, PA – Walnut St. Labs, an Innovation Lab in West Chester, PA, is partnering with Unisys Corporation to hold a product prototyping competition.

The prototyping competition, to be held at Walnut St. Labs across five weeks starting on April 15, will be geared towards user interface and user experience designers.

“This is what we always dreamed about doing — elevating innovation by partnering with great companies like Unisys and doing innovative things,” said Chris Dima, Founder and CEO of Walnut St. Labs. “The team at Unisys understands innovation and will be a super productive partner.”

Walnut St. Labs was formed at the end of 2013. Its mission is to foster innovation through co-working, weekly events and technology incubation.

By combining Unisys’ tradition of innovation with the capabilities of Walnut St. Labs, we can have the best of both worlds.”
