Miller Center 3041

Our space in Miller Hall – room 3041 is sweet! It is specifically designed to be a flexible and open co-working space to help you bring your ideas to life. Work in our open area, huddle with your team in the glass conference room, or sit in the lounge and scribble your ideas on the whiteboard wall. While the space is cool, the best thing about it are the people who inhabit it.

Student Venture Seed Funds

Student Venture Seed Funds are a catalyst to help student ventures move beyond the idea stage. A couple hundred dollars can mean the difference between an idea staying just an idea or becoming something much more. From validating customers to testing assumptions, there is a point when great student ideas need a small amount of capital to proceed.

StartupTree

StartupTree is the world’s leading platform for entrepreneurial students and alumni at colleges, to support and provide you with even greater resources to succeed. Add your venture or project, find opportunities, request mentors, and more as you go through your entrepreneurship journey!

Mentor Network

The W&M Mentor Network connects motivated, entrepreneurial students with experts who can provide insights and guidance about making progress on their entrepreneurial endeavors.

Telepresence Robots

Yes – we have robots! Our two Double Robotics telepresence robots can be used to connect virtually with one of our non-local mentors. Just schedule a meeting using StartupTree, show up to the Center at the prearranged time, and your mentor will join in using one of the bots.

Rapid Prototyping

Sometimes you need to hold an idea in your hands to figure out the next step. The Miller Center has two Flashforge Creator Pro 3D printers to literally make your ideas come to life. Get trained on the printers and use them to make 3D models of your hardware concepts.

Traction Gong

This resource is really important. We help you celebrate your wins with our traction gong. When your venture acquires its first customer or generates its first revenue, join the traction club and give the gong a whack! Seriously, celebrating milestones is a critical aspect of entrepreneurship (and it’s fun).
