Building bridges to global success

OBM (Ocean Bridge Management) creates global business opportunities

with a speciality in Japan, UK and Europe, based on our extensive network of 

government, industry and academia.

We believe business is about people and ideas in partnership. When we connect on a human level we connect ideas

that flourish and promote sustainable growth.

At Ocean Bridge Management we work to join ideas and people from across the world

so we can best help build the bridges to success.

Business across cultural boundaries is not straightforward.

The differences reveal potential. The similarities help build bridges.

and make the difference between success and failure.
