The Mill was a place of transformation. It converted cotton to cloth, grain to flour, ore to steel. The Mill changed the landscape of our economy once. And it is ready to do it again.

The Mill helps idea and seed stage startups evolve.

It is their contribution to creating a flourishing startup ecosystem. The Mill has a strong company culture that is grounded in six core values:

  • THOUGHTFULNESS: They think and act deliberately and in alignment with our values.
  • HARD WORK: They love our work. They act, finish, and do what needs to be done.
  • RESILIENCE: They are resourceful, creative, and determined problem solvers.
  • TRANSPARENCY: They are honest, open and direct in what they do and how they do it.
  • CONTRIBUTION: They are contributing to something bigger. They intend to make a difference.
  • INCLUSIVITY: They value diversity and actively seek out founders, mentors, investors and partners who have traditionally been underrepresented in the startup sector.
