The Launch Factory is located in the General Dyestuff building, on Wilkinson Blvd. in Charlotte, North Carolina. This historic location was constructed in 1939 by General Dyestuff Corporation to support the growing textile industry of the time. The building sits on a portion of the old WW I Camp Greene site (1917 – 1919) in close proximity to the Historic Dowd House. The building was converted in 2008 to professional office condominiums and renamed The Dyestuff Commercial Lofts.
Through a seven-million-dollar redevelopment effort, the brick, concrete and steel building and its façade have largely been preserved intact, including the two loading docks and the old freight elevator which now serve as building entrances. The Launch Factory occupies the full third floor of the Dyestuff building and is proud to say that much of the original building's aesthetic history has been left intact and contributes to the unique environment of our co-working space.
The Launch Factory is a collection of dreamers, innovators, motivators, and entrepreneurs drawn together by the desire to impact a diverse community. We provide an environment of coworking spaces, private offices, rooms for inspiring events, training programs and an atmosphere that fosters a start-up and small business ecosystem. We are the meeting point for people and organizations wanting to change the world, connect with other professionals and learn new ways and methodologies of work.
