After activation, company-specific design clinics will delve deeper into the company's design needs and offer guidance in the use of design together with product development experts. The clinic reinforces the understanding of design with the help of concrete examples and creates the conditions for a business to transform to a user of design.

In addition to the design clinic, the understanding of design can also be increased with the help of a modular toolkit developed by the Foundation. Customizable tools serve the needs of SMEs according to the degree of design utilization.
