Occentra, Inc., currently operating as Occentra American Business Labs and Media, is the developer of the Occentra Business Empowerment Network (OBEN), a constantly evolving and dynamic association of businesses whose combined purpose is to lead the way to showing entrepreneurs and Small-to-Medium Businesses (SMB's) how to become Intelligent Organizations in the 21st century and to shatter lingering 20th century ideas, beliefs and models of how and why successful, high-growth businesses are built. While many of the business ideas and concepts that were developed during and prior to the 20th century are timeless in their effectiveness, some of them have to be discarded because they no longer fit the current economic climate, market dynamics, realities and new understandings of the 21st century. These realities have undergone a dramatic shift driven primarily by the power and proliferation of the internet. Businesses that ignore these realities and understandings will struggle. Businesses that master these realities and understandings will prosper.
