REBOOT: inclusive entrepreneurial education

Entrepreneurship presents powerful opportunities for individuals and communities. Here at The Mill, we want to create more inclusive access to those opportunities! ReBoot is a free program to help people explore entrepreneurship and receive support for developing them.

Participants in ReBoot learn how to define a compelling business proposition, test it out with potential customers, prepare to launch a business, manage the most important financials, and present their business for investment. They’ll have access to mentors, successful  entrepreneurs, and a slate of inspiring expert speakers.

All participants receive memberships to The Mill, where they can take advantage of additional free programs to grow their businesses and connect to an extensive network of mentors and investors.

  • Exclusively for women & nonbinary folx who want to explore entrepreneurship

  • We’ll meet for 5 days in February, from 6-7:30 pm. First class is in-person, the rest are virtual.
  • You’ll also get a free 3-month full-time membership to The Mill and access to all its resources. We’ll check in with you monthly to see how you’re doing and how we can help!

Thank you so much. I really enjoyed doing this. It gave me the confidence boost I needed to really get this rolling and start working on my other business ideas as well. It has been an amazing opportunity.

Being part of your ReBoot Program has me doing more research on things I need and want to know about what I want to do, and reaching out to connections I now have for answers I need.
