The John O’Daniel Exchange building began as a way for community members to adapt and grow in Northeast Central Durham. Whether the purpose was to provide minority jobs, empower women for economic independence, or house nonprofits working to make a difference, this company is a place of hope and opportunity for the community. Now, their mission remains the same as they provide a home for many small businesses and provide affordable wedding and event space for this community. Providing office space as well as event space has been a key part of owner Wendy Clark’s vision for building a community in Durham. Here, they cultivate entrepreneurship and healthy relationships as part of their rich history.
