Ocean Programs Luncheon

Equipping Entrepreneurs to Impact the World

On April 8, 2019, Sagamore Institute hosted a luncheon with Scott Weiss, founder of OCEAN Programs based in Cincinnati. OCEAN was founded to increase the awareness of God by building into entrepreneurs. It is a non-profit that serves entrepreneurs by providing access to training, community, and a foundation of faith on which to launch new organizations. Mr. Weiss shared OCEAN’s inspiring “origin” story and summarized three key products of the program.
