“Miller Center is the first program I have experienced that not only teaches social entrepreneurs how to better impact the people it serves but has also taught me to better engage, communicate, and convey my business to various stakeholders to foster my business’s growth.
The mentors in the program have a proven track record and are dedicated to passing on their experiences to entrepreneurs. I have become a more effective leader of my enterprise and community, now equipped with the tools necessary to grow my business to its full potential.”

Highly selective process
