Welcome to The Mill

We are a community of doers working in the center of downtown Wilmington. We work hard, player harder, and get things done. Our community ranges from programmers to lawyers, from solopreneurs to established businesses.

Why Coworking?

The 9-to-5 culture is changing. The national trend is towards small business and freelancing. In 2015, 35% of U.S. workers were freelancers. The nation’s corporate office sector is feeling it. Empty office buildings collect dust as people more and more turn towards making their livings on their own.

Coworking has risen from this national change. People who work out of coworking spaces report that they are more engaged, more motivated, more satisfied, and feel more successful. They network organically and meet new friends. Most importantly, 89% surveyed reported that they were happier in a coworking space. Your profession is a large chunk of your life, so where you do it and who you surround yourself with matters.

Here in Wilmington, The Mill serves a very real need. Members range from freelance designers and developers, to large credit card companies, and everything in-between. We’ve built a community of ambitious people who get work done and have fun doing it.

ROBERT HERRERA

Founder

Hailing from an architecture background, you might not have expected Robert would breathe life into The Mill. A Delaware native, he returned home after six years working on projects across the world, and wanted to start something unique. He gathered the community together to execute, and The Mill was born. He continues to work with organizations of all sizes to "make things happen." You can find him on his tread desk, burning extra calories while checking his email.
