Executive Director of The Seasteading Institute and CEO of Blue Frontiers
Randolph was the pragmatic Executive Director of The Seasteading Institute from 2012 to 2017, and is now the CEO of the spin-off company Blue Frontiers. He spearheaded the Floating City Project since 2013 when he determined that merging seasteading goals with startup city methods was the most practical first steps for the seasteading movement. On behalf of The Seasteading Institute, he signed an agreement with the president of French Polynesia on January 13, 2017, to establish the first seasteading pilot project with a “special governing framework” in a protected lagoon. The Institute and Blue Frontiers expect to pass “seazone” legislation in French Polynesia by the end of the year, to begin operations in Polynesia in 2018, and to develop the first floating islands by 2020.
