Fake Grimlock almost needs no introduction. But for those who somehow haven’t already heard about this amazing, literally firebreathing business pundit, here’s a short description: He’s an imaginary, giant robot dinosaur who tweets in all caps and dispenses advice on how to make your startup AWESOME.
Imagine someone like “lean startup” evangelist Eric Ries, or 37 Signals founders and Rework authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson – except he’s a giant robot dinosaur.
Still confused? Here’s a short video of his guest appearance at Harvard Business School.
Fake Grimlock is gaining followers on Twitter, and not just because he threatens to eat those who disagree with him. FG is funny and often spot-on. He’s also made appearances on the blogs of New York VC Fred Wilson as well as Colorado VC Brad Feld, where he’s done a couple of amazing guest posts. And he’s coming to SXSW.
Now Fake Grimlock will be coming to VentureBeat, hopefully not to eat our readers, but to answer their questions.
What do you want to know about startups, being an entrepreneur, defining your company’s “minimum viable personality?” Do you need help to BE AWESOME?
