OCEAN small biz training coming to Dayton

April 2, 2019

Cincinnati-based OCEAN’s Small Business Training program is coming to Dayton this spring!

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.

The Dayton cohort will meet Thursday evenings, April 11-June 6, 5:30-9pm, at The Entrepreneur’s Center, 714 E. Monument Ave., Dayton.

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.
