Investment Approach

Business Ventures Portfolio

For Blue Ocean’s Business Ventures Portfolio, we commit capital to companies that are innovative, focused, and led by high-potential business leaders with a plan for transformational change.

Curt Richardson and the Blue Ocean team have a keen eye for identifying and assessing aspiring business leaders. In addition to providing financial support, Blue Ocean mentors their affiliated companies on business strategy and operations and supports them with extensive “best-in-class” professional services that enable them to concentrate on their core strengths.

Commercial Real Estate Portfolio

The strategy behind our commercial real estate investments is to make a positive community impact through property improvement, redevelopment, and long-term ownership.

Our diversified portfolio is built through active, opportunistic investments in holdings that we can revitalize into top-flight office or retail space. Currently, we own nearly 400,000 square feet of leasable space and manage approximately 300,000 square feet of leased space.

Rather than targeting investment opportunities of a particular size, location, or price, Blue Ocean’s real estate investment team discovers high-quality properties as well as diamonds in the rough that we can transform for the benefit of our close-knit community.

We are end-to-end developers, with the in-house expertise to manage planning, construction, interior design, and property management and maintenance for our tenants.
