Building the best teams

We help founders and their teams learn how to recruit, retain, and grow world-class talent.

Go to market

We coach founders on business models and pricing; navigating enterprise contract deals; and developing new narratives and go-to-market presentations that help on the path to product market fit.  

Fundraising guidance

We help ensure founders set the right financial foundation to de-risk their next round of funding for Series A or multi-stage investors. 


Oceans Team

The inner circle

We are built for this. We have the operational experience to identify and support outlier founders and teams. We started Oceans because founders kept approaching us individually to ask for help − they had capital but wanted guidance from people who had lived the journey. Steven built Quattro Wireless from the bottom up through to acquisition by Apple and led the pivotal transformation of Foursquare. Josh played an instrumental role in establishing Meta’s first satellite office in NYC and helped launch several key early products. Glenn architected world class teams and opened up Sales / Marketing and Engineering offices globally for Meta and Google. Sara ran engagements, designed and implemented software solutions, and built and led global development teams at software companies such as ClearForest, acquired by Refinitiv. And, Brian led corporate development and M&A efforts across the Time Warner ecosystem, including acquiring startups and putting over $3 billion of capital to work. We have the operational expertise that only comes with experience.
