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.

WHY OCEAN?

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
