Ten Things to Know about Jeremy Gutsche

By: Patricia, Fashionotes

Innovative, creative and vibrant. Could Jeremy Gutsche be the coolest man alive?

Jeremy Gutsche is the mastermind behind Trend Hunter, an online community showcasing the latest trends in design, technology, business, pop culture and fashion. Established in 2006, the Trend Hunter website has 50,000 contributors around the world helping Gutsche on his quest to stay on top of all things cool by researching and tracking data on a variety of hot topics and compiling them into trend reports. He’s contributors include journalists, marketers and entrepreneurs.

Needless to say, staying on top of the latest and coolest is a hard job, especially with trends changing at a rapid pace.

If you think that this site is only for hipsters, Trend Hunter reports go out to some of today’s most popular companies such as, eBay, Google, Microsoft and Pepsi Co. And, why wouldn’t they rely on Gutsche and his team’s expertise? After all, it’s their job to be cool.

Gutsche’s initial hope for Trend Hunter was that many would use the site as a form of inspiration—namely, aspiring entrepreneurs. Today, Trend Hunter receives 40 million page views per month!

With a slew of corporate cliental and trend-seekers, it’s not surprising that Gutsche has gained such great success. But there’s much more to this uber-trendspotter that many may not know. FASHIONOTES has compiled a listing of the 10 things you should know about Jeremy Gutsche:
