About First Flight
First Flight (FFVC) is a technology incubator located in the heart of Research Triangle Park. Established in 1991 to serve the initial needs of entrepreneurs and early stage companies. FFVC strives to produce companies that graduate from the facility as financially viable and freestanding businesses. These incubator graduates migrate into the mainstream of the business community, creating jobs and commercializing important new technologies that contribute to a stronger North Carolina economy.
We have more than 20 years experience in successfully launching new businesses in North Carolina. This success lies in First Flight’s turnkey approach—the ability to enable tenant businesses to reduce both their initial capitalization requirements and their annual operation costs by providing affordable space with flexible leases, shared business services, technology support services, and management guidance and counseling.
FFVC offers 20,000 square feet of leasable office and laboratory space for up to 40 emerging technology companies.
