Earlier Blueseed came up with the idea to create a seaborne startup community in international waters off the coast of northern California. A new report released by the company says it has 133 tech startups on board to move their operations offshore when it launches next year.
The idea is to create a place that requires no visa to visit or work, that will draw the best technology minds and ideas from around the world. Daily ferries will transport people between Blueseed’s floating base and Silicon Valley. This means that people can travel daily to Blueseed or can set up there permanently.
Initially it will cost roughly $1,600 per month for a single occupancy living space (including workspace as well). More well-endowed residents can get a top-tier single occupancy cabin for twice that. Blueseed’s floating city is expected to be launched till end to 2013.
