The Flagship Technology Park is a business incubator that has options for each step of your business’ growth. The Accelerator 1 and Accelerator 2 facilities are available for companies who need office space, warehouse space, manufacturing, and prototyping.

The Engineering and Lab Annex features office space, a conference room, and all the required amenities necessary for an engineering laboratory.
