The space for intermediate-stage companies

Flagship2 (FS2) is an expansion of the Charleston Digital Corridor's highly successful Flagship facility, downtown Charleston's premier business incubator. Like the Flagship, FS2 offers a contemporary business environment dedicated for use by intermediate-stage tech and tech-related companies.

Why lease at the Flagship2?

The Flagship2 (FS2) is an expansion of the successful Flagship business incubator. Located next to the Flagship, FS2 is second of two facilities that cater exclusively to the transitional business needs of intermediate-stage tech and tech related businesses. It is flexible, full service and connected.

What types of companies reside at the FS2?

Past and present residents include knowledge-based businesses from a number of different sectors, including: software and web development, cyber security, database management, digital media, advertising, electronic communication, and technology products and sustainability.

Why are there only month-to-month leases available at FS2?

Rather then get trapped in a long term lease, FS2 is designed to provide maximum flexibility for early-stage companies by offering residents only month-to-month leases with a maximum stay of twelve months. Few - if any - other local professional office space solutions provide this level of flexibility for emerging tech companies.

How does the month-to-month lease work?

FS2 requires a one-month deposit and rental terms are defined on a month-to-month basis, with rent payable by the 3rd day of each month.

Is there parking at FS2?

Yes. FS2 offers on-site parking as well as parking at two public parking garages (Gaillard and Aquarium) within a short walk of the facility. FS2 guests have several parking options within close proximity to the property.

Are the office spaces fully furnished?

Yes! All offices come fully furnished with desks, chairs, white boards, and other workspace necessities. Common spaces (such as the kitchen, conference rooms, and general seating areas) are also available for use by all FS2 tenants and their guests. Office spaces range in size and are tailored to company needs.

Are there any rules about who can or cannot rent space at FS2

FS2 does not discriminate on the basis of race or color, creed, national origin, age, gender, physical limitations, or sexual orientation. We do, however, reserve the right to accept or deny prospective clients on any other, legally allowable, basis.

Can companies request additional space or services as they grow?

Yes. Depending on a company's current needs and spaces available, the CDC will work to identify and facilitate options that are the best fit for that company. Sometimes this means an additional office at FS2 or working within CDC's network of local real estate professionals to find suitable office space.

Are there restaurants/services/shops nearby?

For starters, there is a Starbucks next door and a host of great restaurants, all within a couple of minutes from FS2. Then there is King Street – a top ten shopping street in the country. More? - How about the main library, a post office, card shop and grocery store.

Can non-FS2 residents rent event/training/meeting space?

While companies residing at the Flagship are our first priority, the Flagship conference facilities are available to other groups for a fee. If you are interested in hosting a meeting or special event at the Flagship, Please email us for more information.

This all sounds great! When can we move in?

Assuming office availability, Flagship staff can move extremely quickly (same day) to assist start-up enterprises looking for a home. Please send us an email for more information.
