WELCOME TO THE MILL

about us

WELCOME TO THE Mill

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

We want to give you only the best

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.

Rebecca Parsons

Director of Operations
Here at the Mill, Rebecca ensures that everything moves smoothly. She oversees events, coordinates local art for the space, and works with members to answer everyday questions. Rebecca is often camera-in-hand and ready to capture every moment. You may find her working alongside her partner-in-crime, Leroy Doodle, her friendly labradoodle.
