Our Story

We are skilled disrupters. Provocateurs. Wave makers. We don’t just accept the way things are, we see things for how they could be. Our mind-to-market approach brings disruptive thinking, science and engineering to create new knowledge and technology for humans and society.

Playing by the rules is fine if you want the same results time after time. At Oceanit, a rule-breaking practice of Intellectual Anarchy produces disruptive innovation, as we consistently discover the edges of thinking and create breakthroughs in science, engineering, and technology to change the world.

We’ve built a culture that enables disparate teams with an elusive blend of people, culture, technology, geographies and values to see through problems like no one else. Across Oceanit, you’ll find unlikely teams of nanotechnologists, structural engineers and biochemists working alongside each other.

No two teams at Oceanit are the same. Empowering our teams to practice transdisciplinary thinking allows for extraordinary problem-solving across disciplinary boundaries. Our teams morph together and apart, aligning the best experts in each discipline to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. Our teams reject old norms and create breakthroughs that move whole industries and communities forward.

We are proud of what we’ve created and what lies ahead. We are Oceanit.

Our Core Competency: The Impossible

Our clients tell us we do the impossible. The question we get asked most often is “How did you do that?”

Delivering on the impossible is always challenging. The innovation process is messy even under the best of conditions. But our culture creates an environment where people can bring out their best.

We call our process Mind to Market. This methodology works like this: We solve problems in many disciplines, based on “market pain.” Then we start a customer engagement process to validate that we are delivering on what the people actually can use. As a last step we initiate a process around delivery, either delivering via a spin-out, directly manufacturing, or developing a licensing agreement with an existing organization with distribution channels. Each unique opportunity is treated differently, but all are driven to the market.

This open innovation environment, together with a methodical execution process, creates the ability to have both open innovation and the discipline to deliver results.
