What is OCEAN?

OCEAN is a top-tier accelerator with God at the center.
OCEAN is the first independent, faith-based accelerator in the United States. Each year, we select 10 high-potential startups for a 5-month journey that builds solid infrastructure, deepens character, attracts investors and set the course for long-term success


A fully integrated life provides a unique advantage. Business run by people of faith still need to be good businesses. We believe the way to get there is by taking into account the spiritual, relational, physical, intellectual and financial aspects of founders as they launch their venture. Our numbers say it’s working: five of ten companies in the first class were funded by graduation.

Our Method

Each startup receives a $35,000 seed investment in the form of a founder-friendly convertible note.


There are over 80 OCEAN mentors, including startup successes, CEO’s and functional experts. Mentors donated over 250 hours of volunteer instruction time last year.


OCEAN’s formal curriculum is a five-month program designed with monthly, weekly and daily rhythms customized for each company.
