WELCOME TO OCEAN
Eliminate the Guesswork from Entrepreneurship
OCEAN is a training community for entrepreneurs that integrates practical business skills with biblical wisdom so that you can start and lead a sustainable business without the pressure of figuring it out alone.
Faith & Co. Film
“Grounded in faith, OCEAN goes beyond those basic functions creating community and holistically caring for founders who face a lonely and difficult journey. It aims to help them flourish as persons so they can help others flourish through their enterprises.”
Most businesses fail due to avoidable mistakes. Figuring out how to navigate potential pitfalls on your own is hard.
fail due to misreading market demand
fail because they ran out of funding
fail because they had a weak founding team
failed in 2018 due to cash flow problems
Starting a business isn’t easy. We can help you avoid common mistakes and burnout through proven business training integrated with timeless biblical wisdom—all within the context of a supportive community of entrepreneurs.
We care about Holistic Growth.
Starting a new business can be lonely, stressful, and full of intimidating unknowns. It’s too often the story that entrepreneurial success has come at the cost of relationships and physical, mental, and spiritual health.
There is a better way.
A healthy, integrated founder is essential to the outlook, longevity, and ultimate legacy of a company. So we foster an environment and a curriculum where:
- Founders are free to participate as their whole selves
- Rhythms of rest and reflection are as important as design sprints and pitches
- The founders’ relational health has a deeper scope than the number of networking calls logged in a week
This isn’t just an add-on about mental health or platitudes about work-life balance. This is the core of our mission.
Because something life-giving and good cannot grow from rotten roots.
“We believe the world looks better—in a few years, in a decade, in 50 years—if thousands and thousands of entrepreneurs who are driven and motivated by purpose and faith are successful, building healthy, strong businesses that create flourishing workplace cultures.“
Luke Dooley —President of OCEAN
