The gang at 500 Startups, US-based startup accelerator and seed fund, are usually the most casually dressed people around. And it’s also the path they expect the startups they work with to follow when it comes to business: innovate on the stuff that matters - and forget the the rest.
500 Startups, started by Dave McClure, also organizes Geeks on a Plane, which takes a group of investors, entrepreneurs, and strategists around the world to the hottest startup destinations to meet with other entrepreneurial communities.
One of the participants at the event.
McClure says he originally started Geeks on a Plane for his own interests in traveling, but the concept has ”become a way to meet investors and entrepreneurs in other countries, learn about international markets, and potentially make investments in those countries.” In the two years they’ve been around, they’ve traveled to Europe, Latin America and Asia.
While in India, they will traveling to Delhi, Mumbai and Banglore.
