Check Out The Stunning Vessels One Startup Conceived To House Entrepreneurs Who Can’t Get A Visa

Entrepreneurs from around the world want to gain a toehold in Silicon Valley, but not all of them have access.

That’s where Blueseed, a Peter Thiel-backed startup based in Sunnyvale, Calif., comes in.

The company aims to sidestep the U.S. current regulations by building vessels that would float in international waters near Silicon Valley and serve as technology incubators for entrepreneurs who can’t get visas to do business in the U.S., according to a recent AP article.

Blueseed says on its website that it plans to launch the so-called “Googleplex of the seas” in the third quarter of 2013. In addition to living spaces, the ship will be equipped with cafeterias, recreation facilities and ferry service to the San Francisco area.

Prices for a basic room are expected to start at $1,200 per month.

Blueseed shared some of their latest renderings with us–for that price, how do they stack up against current living accommodations in Silicon Valley?
