Our New Home in American Underground

A few weeks ago, we packed up our office of five years and moved to our new headquarters at American Underground @ Main, an awesome coworking and office space for startups located in the heart of downtown Durham. We couldn’t be more excited to join this community of bright, enthusiastic entrepreneurs!

Here’s what a few of our team members had to say about the move, along with some photos of our new home:

“The proximity to and density of other companies working hard and solving real problems has an unparalleled effect on our ability to do the same. From learning and networking opportunities to being a part of the Google Tech Hub network, we know that joining the Underground will help Shoeboxed develop and reach new heights.”
-Anjana, VP of Product

“American Underground is awesome! From delicious Larry’s Beans coffee to old school arcade games, it has everything we need to work hard and play hard.”
-Mike, Marketing Manager

“We value the startup ecosystem that American Underground has created and we want to be a big part of it. There’s such an intense entrepreneurial spirit and sense of camaraderie, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work in a community filled with so much drive and diversity.”
-Taylor, CEO

We’d like to thank the American Underground community for being so welcoming! We already feel at home in our new office and look forward to many productive years here.

American Underground @ Main. Our office is still under construction, but stay tuned for photos once we’ve moved in!

Our sales, marketing, product, customer support and executive teams will be moving to the American Underground at Main Street as the anchor tenant of their largest hub in downtown Durham. We can’t wait to join the awesome community of entrepreneurs and startups and thrive on the energy that American Underground creates.

“Shoeboxed is one of the companies that inspired and encouraged the creation of the American Underground,” says Adam Klein, chief strategist at American Underground. “We knew if there were other ridiculously smart people creating practical, elegant solutions to real problems in our community, the American Underground could be their destination. Having Shoeboxed expand and relocate to American Tobacco and American Underground not only validates the Underground but our entire ecosystem.”
