About Durham

Where your product
becomes success

Entrepreneurship is in Durham’s blood. We arose because of entrepreneurs in tobacco and textiles, boomed, and then declined. But now we are back–and with a vengeance–as what CNBC calls ‘The Startup Hub of the South’. Between our startup hub, American Underground, and dense urban core, our downtown boasts more than 300 startups. The Stampede will help you tap into the expertise in this community and beyond to build a successful company.
