ExitEvent and American Underground are partnering to bring those outside of the Durham startup campus a peek inside. Each Wednesday at lunch, American Underground @Main hosts an event called HelpFest, in which members of the community (and sometimes guests) share some element of their business, strategy or passion, and take questions from the audience.

On October 21st, Jim Whitehurst, CEO of Red Hat, stopped by to give a talk about leadership and answer questions from the AU Startup Community.
