Looking for a place to hang your entrepreneur’s hat? Want to collaborate with like-minded companies that think about how the world of wireless impacts business? The WRC Commercialization Center may be the answer with office space for lease.

In our Commercialization Center, product-centric companies with intellectual property as a core strategy hang up a shingle. Our partners design and build globally competitive products while taking full advantage of WRC’s testing and engineering environment. They choose the WRC because of the critical advisory services and guidance offered during what is often unfamiliar territory for entrepreneurs.

The WRC team offers support where the startup hurdle is often difficult to overcome without the benefit of experience. We combine scientific understanding with knowledge and wisdom to identify a unique path for each company and the right partners who can help.

Part of the vision when the WRC was founded was a partnership with the Town of Wake Forest to establish the commercialization center to provide a shared resource of office space, equipment and a team of experts for collaboration to innovate and develop the next generation of communications products and services.

More than 20 start-up companies have taken advantage of the commercialization center office space at the WRC headquarters in Wake Forest.
