Hangar6 is a program created by the First Flight Venture Center (FFVC), North Carolina’s foremost science and technology business incubator. Established in 1991 to serve the initial needs of entrepreneurs and early stage science companies. FFVC strives to produce companies that graduate from the facility as financially viable and freestanding businesses.  This success lies in First Flight’s turnkey approach—the ability to enable companies to reduce both their initial capitalization requirements and their annual operation costs by providing affordable space with flexible leases, shared business services, and management guidance and counseling. FFVC offers 25,000 square feet of leasable office and laboratory space for up to 40 emerging high-science, high-impact companies.

Hangar6 is a subscription-based program based on monthly/yearly memberships. Members are afforded a comfortable work-space with access to state of the art equipment and design expertise. Corporate sponsorships with varying levels and access are available. 

FFVC is pleased to offer this advanced prototyping facility to the entrepreneurial community to:

  • Access to an expensive and diverse range of advanced prototyping equipment
  • Build prototypes economically and on a flexible schedule
  • Evolve designs in real time
  • Utilize the design expertise of skilled Hangar6 team
  • Synergy of being with like-minded entrepreneurs
