It’s time to Explore your dreams

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 you explore entrepreneurship with support from experts.

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. You’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.

So much information was conveyed in just a week, it has really jump-started my motivation to get going on my start-up idea. I appreciated all the guest speakers and the opportunity to begin to network or exchange ideas with other members of our cohort!

I really liked how patient Andy was . . . especially with me as I TRY to learn new ways of doing things, lol. & it was helpful to me to hear how others are also working towards more independence.

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.
