Who is Startup L. Jackson?????

Good morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and got some great rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, it’s back to work mode for all :(. However, in spite of having to go back to work, I thought I’d do a post that might give you some humor. For those of you who are in the tech world like me, there are a number of ‘parody’ tech Twitter accounts. There are a ton out there, but the one that strikes me the most is Startup L. Jackson. If you’re wondering who Startup L. Jackson is, I am in the same boat as you. In fact, NO ONE knows who he/she really is :). To date, the parody account has over 55K followers, and still hasn’t revealed their identity. Started back in 2011, the person behind the mystery decided to create an account that would tweet about his/her honest, but funny, opinions on the startup industry. Be warned, the parody account is a ‘no holds barred’ type of narrative. You can see for yourself below from a Tweet that went viral.

Since then, there have been numerous articles, interviews with the mysterious person, and blog posts about the puzzle behind Startup L. Jackson. Startup fans, VCs, tech reporters, and entrepreneurs alike all follow the account and engage with whomever is behind the mask. I for one, am an avid follower. The person speaks the truth, and makes real conversational posts. Just recently, the account posted about an ongoing topic, “Twitter.” The post went viral and was shared among peers in the startup/tech industry. If you want to read the full post, you can view it below from the actual tweet.

If you’re still curious, there was a great interview conducted by Ryan Hoover from @ProductHunt via soundcloud. Listen for yourself and see if you can solve the mystery behind who Startup L. Jackson is!

Let me know if you figure it out!
