Our Annual Partners
What is OCEAN?
OCEAN is an independent business accelerator that is uniquely faith backed, focused on building into the founder. Our mission is to increase God’s presence in the marketplace by building into entrepreneurs. We accelerate entrepreneurs with knowledge, relationships, coaching and seed funding. OCEAN enhances a concurrent spiritual journey that guides founders to explore how faith integrates with starting a business.
The unique integration of proven start-up acceleration content and an examination of faith strongly appeals to start-ups from across the globe. Cincinnati’s vibrant start-up ecosystem enhances OCEAN’s appeal and supports our concurrent objective to attract and retain new businesses. Just over half of 330 applications for the first two classes came from outside Cincinnati with nearly half of that group applying from outside the United States.
