The Mill House Social Enterprise Accelerator delivers venture development skills and networks to enable social enterprises to bcome sustainable and generate social impact.

The Mill House Accelerator is the social enterprise node of the Canberra Innvoation Network (CBRIN). Through the Mill House Ventures’ high calibre networks, the program provides industry-specific expertise through business mentors from a range of Industry sectors and organisations, as well as analytical support from The Mill House Clinic. 

Social enterprises that have participated in our programs help marginalised people by generating jobs and providing solutions to community problems in areas such as economic participation, health, housing, education and food security.

We are seeking expressions of interest from enthusiastic and committed CHANGEMAKERS and IMPACT PRACTITIONERS to participate in the 2020 GRIST program. Individuals and venture teams from Canberra and the surrounding region are encouraged to apply. Find out more when you click!


The Mill House Clinic assists social and Indigenous Ventures with accessing high-quality professional services. In addition to being low on funds, our entrepreneurs often don’t know what they don’t know.

This lack of experience in clearly defining a business problem is a liability when trying to decide on what kind of professional business advisor, service or consultant to engage.

The design of Mill House Clinic is such that it brings together University students from various disciplines with professional services providers. We take a holistic approach to understanding the client’s challenges and recommending a project that is most useful and feasible.

If you are interested, send us your Expression of Interest, and our Business Development Manager will evaluate your business needs before assigning students. Find out more when you click!
