GET STARTED

Train entrepreneurs with GENESIS

This ready-to-go curriculum will give entrepreneurs in your community practical business acumen along and help them integrate biblical wisdom along the way. In just nine weeks, participants refine their business and build a business plan they can execute. 

How it Works

FIND ENTREPRENEURS

They might call themselves self-employed, have a side-hustle, or be dreaming about taking their hobby to a small business. There are entrepreneurs in your church and community who would benefit from honing their practical business skills in a community of faith.

Activate a Volunteer

Get Started

The nine-week program connects entrepreneurs to each other, to the practical tools they need for running a business, and draws them closer to God along the way. The OCEAN team provides all the technical support and training material so you can focus on entrepreneurs in your community.

Strong Businesses

Strong businesses provide employment opportunities. Their services & products that make customers lives tangibly better. 

When those businesses are led by a healthy entrepreneur, they offer life-giving and dignified work in vibrant company cultures. They operate with generosity, integrity, and care.

Thriving Communities

When a healthy founder launches and leads a strong business, the effects ripple out into the rest of the world.
