Our mission at 500 is to find incredible entrepreneurs wherever they are –  whether they’re in Silicon Valley, New York, or Thailand. Big things are happening in Southeast Asia (SEA), and we’re proud to announce that Geeks on a Plane will make its very first trip to SEA this June!

So what is Geeks on a Plane exactly? #GOAP is an invite-only tour for startups, investors, and executives to learn about burgeoning technology markets worldwide. Our geeks travel far and wide to seek out amazing international entrepreneurs and innovators of all kinds. During these trips, attendees gain new insights, meet new friends, and make business contacts from all over the globe. They also have a lot of FUN.

Geeks on a Plane SEA will take place June 1st – June 15th and will be making stops in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Jakarta. Khailee Ng (EIR at 500 Startups) and Dave McClure will be on the tour, so APPLY TODAY if you think you’re geeky enough to hang with the GOAP crew (past geeks have included folks from Google, eBay, GE, CNN, TechCrunch, Etsy, PayPal, and SurveyMonkey). Applications are open through April 3rd, 2013.

Apply now to journey to SEA and be part of the next GOAP adventure!
