About The Mill
We are Southwestern Ohio's small business incubator for green, clean, water, digital and advanced manufacturing technologies. Conveniently located between Cincinnati and Dayton in the original pioneer town of Hamilton, OH.
Access to Expertise
The City is a leader in renewable energy initiatives and being a provider of water, electric, sewer, gas, and internet fiber makes for a very innovative environment. You will be able to leverage this environment by having access to our expertise, in addition to connecting with our residential and commercial customer base.
It’s all about the “City as a Lab” concept. We have great people, great ideas, great neighborhoods, and great passion – we leverage these assets and people and provide a regional forum for these ideas to nurture and grow.
As part of the Cincinnati and Dayton entrepreneurial ecosystem we have established key partnerships to help your venture be successful. These partnerships will give you access to key personal, resources, and labs throughout the region.
We are a regional incubator offering ease of access to both the Cincinnati and Dayton markets. In fact, we have become the official meet-up spot for companies that have founders from Cincinnati and Dayton.
Backing of a City
We are a passionate city in the middle of a passionate region. This means that you will definitely be given feedback on your venture – good or bad. Plus, we have the expertise that will assist you in navigating through the regulatory framework whether it be City, County, or State. We recently won an award for our unique approach to a public/private partnership with the City.
