First Flight Champions of Innovation

First Flight is a non-profit organization that receives no federal or state funding for daily operating expenses. Without the generosity of individuals, corporations, foundations, and government/civic donors, First Flight would not be able to create and maintain services and programs for early stage companies.  

It is with deep grattiude that we recognize those who have contributed so generously to our mission of job creation and innovation for North Carolina.
