To say that Durham is in the midst of an entrepreneurial boom would be an understatement.
In the last two years, six companies in Durham have been acquired for a combined total of more than one billion dollars. The latest is Bronto, acquired last month for $200 million. Each of the companies were located at the American Tobacco campus and its American Underground. Just yesterday, ArchiveSocial, a Durham Stampede company became the fourth Durham company to win a $100,000 investment from Steve Case. ArchiveSocial’s came during Cases’s Rise of the Rest tour stop in Durham.
Durham is a community of entrepreneurs who value creative ideas, asking “What if?” and bringing talented people together to answer that very question.
