Online Sessions

Participants have access to 30+ sessions with training videos, worksheets, and reading material spread out over the course of nine weeks.

Weekly Workshops

Each week, participants gather for a workshop facilitated by your organization where they learn together and give each other feedback.

Fieldwork

Worksheets and resources with each session, to keep you on track and ensure participants are applying Genesis directly to their business.

Customer Conversations

Participants identify their ideal customer and learn to engage with them regularly and create a customer-focused marketing plan.

Launch Readiness

Guide participants through a process of discovery and collection of assumptions to complete the OCEAN Business Model Canvas. They will know whether or not their business idea is viable.

Biblical Principles

With everything anchored in biblical principles that provide valuable faith tools for both life and business, participants from your organization will keep growing as leaders and individuals.

The curriculum was great but the support we got from the team at OCEAN is what really made the difference.

FAQ

Have Any Questions?

We believe that there are great biblical principles that lead to healthy and fulfilling lives.  We also believe that many of these same principles are overarchingly true and when applied well have a significant business impact whether you are specifically a person of faith or not. 

Genesis is designed to train any early-stage entrepreneur within any industry who is committed to developing their idea and launching their business.

Each cohort includes customized marketing materials, participant onboarding support, facilitator training, and lifetime access to the curriculum, office hours and alumni resources. 

We recommend that you have a minimum of 5 entrepreneurs in a cohort, but there’s a max limit of 15 entrepreneurs.

The cost of Genesis is $1000 per cohort for the organization. The entrepreneur has a direct fee of $250.

Genesis is a 9-module, digital training program with asynchronous and synchronous content designed to bring you a hybrid model learning experience. Traditionally, it’s paced over a 9-week period, but when scheduling your start date, you can coordinate with the OCEAN team to adjust your cohort pace. 

Each week includes a 90-minute live virtual workshop for training and community.  In addition, each weekly session includes flexible asynchronous learning modules that vary in time length but participants should average approximately 4 hours of work for each weekly session.
