Building and Funding the Best Black Led Startups.

Ranked the #3 destination in the world to visit and #4 global city for venture capital investment, Durham is a unique mix of rich history, pioneering achievements and home to Black Wall Street. Durham's American Underground, the program's host, has helped usher over $1.5 Billion in recent exits in their community and is preparing the next generation of Black founders to leverage its rich pool of startup resources. 

 This Exchange will connect participants with investors, entrepreneurs and technologists that will provide tools and tips to help them through the fundraising process. The week will culminate with Durham’s annual celebration of Black Wall Street Homecoming (in conjunction with HBCU North Carolina Central University) which welcomes venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and others in the entrepreneurial community to Durham.
