Guest Speaker: Adam Klein - Director of Strategy for Capitol Broadcasting Company
Adam leads efforts to advance the acclaimed American Tobacco Campus, The American Underground, and Rocky Mount Mills. Adam’s work involves both creating synergies between these communities and advancing their objectives individually.
In his five years at American Underground prior to his role at CBC, Klein helped increase the startups and emerging entrepreneurial companies that utilize its spaces in Durham.
“What started in the basement of American Tobacco in 2010 has boomed into one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial communities in the US. At the American Underground, we’re fortunate to be building one of the most diverse and inclusive startup hubs in the country, in partnership with groups like Google for Entrepreneurs and others locally. With over 1,000 jobs created in the past three years by American Underground companies, we see this work as critical to ensuring the long-term economic success of Durham and our region in the years to come.” -Adam Klein
