We’ve covered seasteads — or floating cities — here on gCaptain in the past, but this latest idea from a company called Blueseed is slightly different. Not just a place to escape the confines of government or political affiliation.  A so called incubator for some of the world’s best and brightest minds… that lack a U.S. working visa and passport.  An offshore office building.  Its tenants? Possibly the next Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg.

The idea is to mobilize a vessel, equipped with amenities you’d expect to see at the offices of Silicon Valley tech giants, just outside immigrations reach.  Close enough to tap the resources of Silicon Valley’s tech industry yet far enough to legally earn an income and develop your ideas no matter what your nationality.  Just check out this video.

Of course Blueseed’s visa-free offshore startup community does not exist yet, but the company is shopping around for vessels.  Here’s an artists rendition of what it could look like.
