OCEAN Entrepreneur Academy

Equipping Entrepreneurs Nationwide to Change the World

Thinking about starting a business? Already launching?

If you're getting stuck, feel like you're doing this alone, or wondering how your faith can be part of your entrepreneurial journey, this online learning community is for you.

Entrepreneurship is the exhilarating journey of bringing dreams to life, but this road is filled with unique challenges, obstacles, and risks. If God has called you to launch and grow a small business, it’s time to take a brave step out that will equip you to walk this path with your sanity intact! There’s never been a better time than right now.

For the past two years, OCEAN has been equipping entrepreneurs in the greater Cincinnati area to boldly step out and change the world. This fall, we’re bringing the game-changing experience of our OCEAN Small Business Training online and available for entrepreneurs nationwide.

Whether just getting started with an idea, a couple years into the launch or your small business, or somewhere in between, OCEAN Entrepreneur Academy can help you take your next steps forward right where you are. (Literally, wherever you are, because #internet.)
