OCEAN launching next round of small biz training

January 15, 2019

Spots are still open for upcoming winter and spring sessions of OCEAN’s Small Business Training program.

The winter session kicks off Jan. 23 at Vineyard Cincinnati Church in Springdale. The spring session will kick off the second week of April in the Mason area.

OCEAN is a Cincinnati non-profit that focuses on the intersection of faith and entrepreneurship.

Their small biz training program is designed for a range of new entrepreneurs from those who are just to build an idea to those who launched within the past two years.

The training sessions are 9 weeks long. Each weekly meeting is four hours long. Each meeting results in an assignment that will take 2 to 3 hours to complete. After the training concludes, cohorts continue to meet once a month for 6 months for group mentoring.

During the training, participants will develop a detailed business strategy, a company mission statement, a marketing plan, sales projections for one year, an effective business pitch, a metrics system to measure success, and key performance indicators to monitor the business performance.

The training will also address Biblical business principles: growing faith and fruitfulness, pursuing relationships, building a consistent brand,, developing a discipleship model, stewarding God-given resources, growing sustainably, and selling in a way that honors others and fosters relationships.

The cost of the training is $599, with a $100 deposit due upon registration. If you’d like to attend with your business partner, the second registration is only $299.
