NONSTOP SERVICE TO

GLOBAL DOMINATION

Organized by 500 Startups, Geeks on a Plane (#GOAP) is an invite-only tour for startups, investors, and executives to learn about high-growth technology markets worldwide. We travel by planes, trains, and automobiles to the most exciting international startup scenes with the sole mission of uniting geeks and exploring cross-border opportunities. The result: a lifelong bond with fellow travelers, a wealth of new friends and business contacts in exploding technology markets, and a stronger appreciation for the cultural and economic ties that bind us globally.

"I came home from GOAP with a tired body—but with an invigorated mind. As a result, I've signed up customers & learned which markets to attack more forcefully."

"In only 6 days, I got a real feel for the startup & tech ecosystems in Mexico & Colombia by watching pitches, meeting people & building strong ties that will last a long time."
