First First Flight Venture Center to Provide Wet Lab Space to Research Companies


Research Triangle Park, N.C. -- Space is filling up quickly but labs are still available!

“For the last 10 years CED has helped me to know what I need to know and to meet the people I need to meet. Every company has a different path to success, but in North Carolina all of those paths go through CED. Every entrepreneur – aspiring or experienced – needs vision, perseverance, and CED.” ~Michael Pollack, co-founder Advanced Liquid Logic – former FFVC Tenant

First Flight Venture Center (FFVC) is now accepting applications for tenants in need of flexible and affordable wet lab space. FFVC is a successful incubator with over 250 graduates and close to $800M in economic impact. Successful past graduates include Advanced Liquid Logic, Advanced Animal Diagnostics and others.

Tenants are fitted with small, well-furnished labs at a fixed price (amenities included). Researchers may also avail themselves of shared resources and the ability to lease critical equipment such as -80 freezers, incubators and other pieces at a low monthly rate.
