RIS Ventures in partnership with Blueseed want you to have another great occasion for your business. This time we are organizing a joint networking event on a cruise!

Blueseed is a project to station a ship 12 nautical miles from the coast of San Francisco, in international waters. The location will allow startup entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world to start or grow their company near Silicon Valley, without the need for a US work visa. The ship will be converted into a coworking and co-living space, and will have high-speed Internet access and daily transportation to the mainland via ferry boat. So far, almost 1000 entrepreneurs from 60+ countries expressed interest in living on the ship.

While bringing down any restrictive boundaries, RIS Ventures are bringing together a large number of successful VCs and the most promising prototype-ready startup teams from the Silicon Valley and Russia/CIS.

Be ready to get on board!
