Community Inspired, Community Led
Dimension Mill is 19,000 square feet of coworking and business incubator space located in the Trades District in downtown Bloomington, Indiana. We have been producing events and programming to support the technology and innovation community since summer 2017, and renovation of the 103-year-old building will be complete in fall 2018.
Operating as a 501(c)(3), The Mill’s purpose is to build the infrastructure that technology and innovation entrepreneurs need to be successful. Specifically, we want them to launch and accelerate companies to create jobs and increase wages. We support that by offering programming and memberships.
With financial support from the City of Bloomington and the Redevelopment Commission for the building renovation and the initial standup period, annual operations are funded by donors from the south-central Indiana region. We have a stated goal of becoming self-sufficient by the end of year three.
The organization is headed by our Executive Director, Pat East, who is also an angel investor and CEO of Hanapin Marketing.
Pat is supported by 16 board members. Of the 16 people, 2/3 represent technology- and innovation-driven companies and 1/3 represent NGOs, ensuring the organization is entrepreneurial-led.
