The Mill's mission is to launch and accelerate startups, and our vision is to become Indiana's center of gravity for entrepreneurship. The Mill provides critical access, firstly to a community of peers and mentors, and secondly to capacity-building resources and startup capital. Our programs help accelerate innovative ideas and technologies into business concepts.
We began offering programming for startups and entrepreneurs in 2017. In November 2018, our membership-based coworking facility opened. Today, The Mill is 19,000 square feet of beautifully renovated, century-year-old factory space in Bloomington's Trades District. We are home to hundreds of members and dozens of companies. Our diverse members include innovators creating startups and small businesses as well as independent freelancers, creatives, and remote workers, for example. Some choose The Mill for our coworking amenities and the great community. Others join for specialized entrepreneurial support: for accelerating their startups, pitching to investors, and securing capital. We serve members, our thriving startup community, and the public at large.
