Unconventional Business Network
Come hear Pete Och’s unconventional business story of how he reached material success early in his career, but wasn’t satisfied with just a large bank account. From this place, he founded Capital III Impact Investment and initiated Enterprise Stewardship to promote and teach the foundational principle that the purpose of business is to not just maximize shareholder value but to be a creative engine to foster human flourishing. Hear about his journey to operate a business inside a maximum-security prison and understand how his philosophy is not only economically profitable, but socially and spiritually transforming lives.
Pete Ochs is founder and chairman of Capital III, an impact investment company with investments in the US and Central America. Enterprise Stewardship is an initiative of Capital III that equips marketplace leaders with resources to transform their personal LIFE and business enterprises. He is also the author of, A High Impact LIFE.
During his four decades in business he has invested and operated companies in the energy, manufacturing, banking, and education sectors, often times focusing on places devoid of human flourishing such as prisons and poverty-stricken countries. Pete’s passion in life is to educate, equip, and empower business leaders around the world to live for something greater than themselves by using their business platform to impact the world for Christ.
Before launching his impact investment company Capital III, Pete spent 8 years in the commercial banking industry. Pete and his wife Debbie have been instrumental in founding and growing several nonprofit enterprises. They have 2 children and 8 grandchildren.
