Downtown Durham start-ups buzzing

RTP has always been the center of entrepreneurial activity in the Raleigh-Durham area, but downtown Durham is coming into its own as a hotbed of start-up activity. The new website lists 14 start-ups in downtown, employing an estimated 170 people. Hyperlocal blog Bull City Rising has hired correspondent Justin Landwehr to write a series of articles focusing on the start-up scene throughout Durham. With the Center for Entrepreneurial Development moving their headquarters to the American Tobacco Campus in October, there may be more to talk about in downtown Durham than baseball and beer.
