RALEIGH, N.C. -

Raleigh is a thriving city for entrepreneurs, and now small startups will be able to develop their big ideas in a bigger space.

HQ Raleigh held its grand opening Monday in its new location in downtown Raleigh's warehouse district. It offers affordable space and resources for start-up companies.

The new building is double in size, with 22 office suites instead of six and eight conference rooms to host events.

One of HQ Raleigh's biggest success stories, Justin Miller's WedPics, was recently name the best photo and video sharing app for weddings by Yahoo.com.

"It's a really nice environment to start. It is really conducive for us being here at lot together, which always helps really fuel the creativity and the execution of the platform," Miller said. "I'm really excited about what is going to happen."

Miller said his company has doubled its business since July 2013.
