The Mill Space, located on the fourth floor of the Nemours Building, has been the subject of much attention as it has recently demonstrated its clear ability to foster collaboration. Sometimes, among very different organizations. The open-plan co-working space is home to more than two-hundred freelancers, nonprofits, students, and businesses which range from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies and from private workspaces to corporate offices. Essentially, the Mill Space caters to real-estate needs of all shapes and sizes. There’s a home at the Mill for all kinds of individuals and businesses alike to work together or side by side and still grab a beer or a ping-pong game.
The Mill recognizes that as times are changing and the basic corporate mold begins to unravel, the need for a more flexible and versatile workspace is important. So, it’s no surprise that community and collaboration are welcomed and happen often. For Mill Space natives CompassRed and Strive, this became the main component in their relationship. Seeing many of the same faces every day at The Mill creates a culture and atmosphere of familiarity and friendship which leads to these awesome working relationships.
For Strive’s nonprofit, a youth leadership sports program, they had a need that wasn’t immediately apparent but was met by CompassRed, a data and analytics company. In a recent interview at the Mill the two organizations learned a little more about each other and the rest was history. The Mill is known by its inhabitants for its quirky and fun events, such as massages, meditation, hair-cuts and cooking demonstrations which bring everyone together. From the sounds of it alone, a data company and a youth sports nonprofit may seem like a pretty odd pairing, yet thanks to the Mill Space, they were able to come together in an obvious way- to help each other where it was needed.
