Blueseed Visa Free Silicon Valley Startup Ship gains Interest

Blueseed lets startups work near Silicon Valley without Visas and green cards. Apparently over 130 startups around the world would be interested to build their business on a ship.

The utopian Blueseed project is back in the news. A survey published by Blueseed reveals that over 130 international startups would be boarding to work near Silicon Valley without Visas.

Working as a foreigner in Silicon Valley is a pain, unless you got a Green Card. In my 7 years in the Silicon Valley I had to get several H1Bs to work for different startups including my own. The Visa requirement is heavily limiting the choice for which company to work for and basically kills efforts to get funding for your own. Blueseed would allow to avoid these hassles, by staying in international waters - 12 miles off the San Francisco Peninsula.

Blueseed is funded by Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal, which makes the whole project more real. The ship is supposed to leave end of 2013.
