First Flight Venture Center’s Hangar6 launch date will be announced shortly.
The Hangar6 shared prototyping facility is designed to serve as a resource for the rapidly-growing number of science- and technology-based entrepreneurial companies that are springing up in the RTP and the greater Triangle region. It will have an ongoing, self-sustaining source of funding through subscription fees for use of the equipment, as well as sponsorship opportunities for companies that offer resources and services needed by companies engaged in the prototyping process. FFVC is actively seeking equipment suppliers and other vendors to participate in the Hangar6 program.
Partnering with FFVC in the Hangar6 project are Alexandria Real Estate Equities, an RTP-based real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on life sciences; the North Carolina Center Of Innovation Network (NC COIN), a member network of companies dedicated to fostering a growth environment in North Carolina for technology companies; and Eva Garland Consulting (EGC), a firm that assists innovative technology companies obtain non-dilutive funding through government and private sources to accelerate their growth.
