Bluefields is a network of sports teams and players, backed by some of the worlds greatest investors and advisors including two of the worlds best accelerators: 500 Startups (Dave McClure) and Seedcamp (2012).
We recently made the crazy decision to re-locate to Las Vegas as part of Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project (Check out downtownproject.com) and have just opened an office there.
We know, we know… that's what we thought when they first suggest our HQ in Vegas, but trust us, it’s awesome.
Here is what the people behind it say: ‘We are a group of passionate people committed to helping to transform Downtown Las Vegas into the most community-focused large city in the world. We are doing that by inspiring and empowering people to follow their passions to create a vibrant, connected urban core.’ … And they have put $350 million where their mouth is, investing in the community and startups.
There’s an amazing emerging tech community, and an awesome serendipitous attitude. It’s also crazily cheap to live there.
We are just closing our seed investment round and are on a path to create something that is truly (potentially) massive.
We’re looking for an awesome people to join our small passionate team. People who aren’t content with standing still. People who want to make a product that can influence the world, and have a lot of fun along the way.
We work really hard and we strive for more. Here are some principles that guide us:
Embrace & Drive change
Always be hacking
Anything is possible (even if not probable)
Good Design in everything we do
Make shit happen and have fun along the way
Have a sense of humor
Test that motherfucker
Always be shipping
