Dave McClure has minions around the world. Fact or Fiction?

Here at Mcclure Facts we’ve been reporting some interesting stuff about THE MAN. Some of you have been kindly enough to help us on our journey to find facts or fictions about Dave McClure, like he never sleeps (thank you Bedy) or he knows you’re bullshitting him way before you open your mouth (thank you Dave).

Dave is always on the move, one day he’ll be in Chicago and the next one in São Paulo with a quick stop in Mexico for margheritas and chili. In the meantime he’s always looking for the next big thing to join his crew at Mountain View. But this isn’t enough, is it Dave? I mean even you have your own limits, right?

WRONG! And now this is getting interesting…

We’ve received reports from a portuguese startup, GoClapp, that a man appeared in their office in Startup Lisboa saying: “ Hi, I’m Dave Mcclure and I’ve heard great things about you”. And they even have pictures to back their story!

Although the guys from GoClapp didn’t seem very convinced they played along and showed the-so-called-Dave what they’ve been doing so far and why they want to get in 500 Startups.

This left us thinking for a moment and realized this could be a brilliant move from Dave, displacing look-alikes all over the world to check out what’s hot in the startup scene without showing up!

Way to go Dave-o!

If this is a true fact there can be hundreds of look alines roaming throughout the world so we´ve decided to held Dave McClure’s look alike competition.

Did you also get a Dave look alike knocking on your door lately? Do you have pictures? Send them to us, NOW!

Register or follow us on Twitter and get all the news about the competition.
