PRLog - March 9, 2012 - ALBANY, Calif. -- San Francisco - Silicon Valley is viewed as the nirvana for startups by international entrepreneurs because of its unique combination of ideas, capital and culture. However, the USA visa immigration system does not allow for entrepreneurs from overseas to come here and test out their ideas in order to create new jobs and new companies.
Dan Dascalescu is the CIO of Blueseed, a "visa-free technology incubator for startups" situated on a ship 12 miles off the coast of Silicon Valley. Blueseed aims to be the "Googleplex of the Sea," a vibrant workplace for innovative industries to bloom, unencumbered by onerous regulations on new technology-sector businesses. The project has attracted investors such as Paypal co-founder and venture capitalist Peter Thiel who made an early investment in what was at the time, a little startup company called Facebook.
Dan says, "Blueseed solves the serious problem of US work visas by enabling startup entrepreneurs from around the world to start or scale their venture in close proximity to Silicon Valley, on a ship anchored 30 minutes by ferry from shore, in international waters outside the jurisdiction of the United States. We are also creating a unique coworking/hackerspace on the ship, with 1000 of the world's top entrepreneurs living, working and playing together. The Global Product Management Talk and StartUPTalk Radio are exciting opportunities to spread the word to entrepreneurs and engage with product professionals who experience the problems that Blueseed is solving."
