Our Impact

Our mission is unique and we’re often asked if the combination of skills and character can yield business success.

One sign of our success is the strength and diversity of the participants. OCEAN attracts a diverse group of founders – participants from 16 countries including Australia, Chile, UAE, Sudan, and the UK. Our participants also bring rich industry and technology diversity. We open the door wide for participants of all beliefs – a third of those who attend our events are not engaged with a church – but all come committed to pursue success and fulfill their personal mission.

The marketplace has noticed.
