Blueseed Raising Money To Park Ship Full of Startups Near SF

"How awesome would it be if there could be an environment that would be dedicated to helping entrepreneurs...grow and scale their companies that could be right here next to Silicon Valley that could be on something like a cruise ship?"

That's what Blueseed founder Max Marty asked himself during his first job out of business school, working for the Seasteading Institute.

Now, Blueseed is trying to make that floating community for startup founders a reality. In Part 1 of our podcast, we discuss how Marty got to the business plan. In Part 2, we discuss how he's raising money for the idea, and whether it will still be viable if some of the bills that seek to bring more foreign entrepreneurs to the U.S. gain traction in Congress.
