On Wednesday, May 15, Core City: Cleveland Impact Program participant Anne Harrill delivered the winning pitch for her business, Océanne during the program’s culminating entrepreneur showcase—taking home the top prize of $10,000.
Inspired by Anne’s childhood in France, and her journey to the American Midwest, Océanne’s jewelry is designed with a focus on craftsmanship, comfort and functional beauty. An artist at heart, she has put in much hard work to develop the business skills needed to make her company both a creative outlet for her talents and a financially successful operation.
After the competition, we had a chance to catch up with Anne to discuss her showcase pitch experience and what comes next for Océanne.
