First Flight Venture Center

First Flight Venture Center (First Flight) is a science and technology incubator located in the heart of Research Triangle Park. Established in 1991 to serve the initial needs of High Impact High Science entrepreneurs and early stage companies. First Flight strives to support companies to "graduate" from the facility as financially viable and freestanding businesses. These incubator graduates then migrate into the mainstream of the business community, not only creating jobs and commercializing important new technologies for the world but also contributing to a stronger North Carolina economy. First Flight creates programs that serve the highest needs of early stage companies such as subsidized professional grant-writing services and advanced precision prototyping.  A key advantage for startups is First Flight's  turnkey approach—the ability to enable startup businesses to reduce both their initial capitalization requirements and their annual operation costs by providing affordable space with flexible leases, shared business services, programs that address key needs, management guidance and connections to the innovation ecosystem. First Flight offers 25,000 square feet of leasable office and laboratory space for up to 40 emerging science/technology companies.
