Jeremy Gutsche

CEO at TrendHunter & Author, Better and Faster


I'm an innovation keynote speaker, author and the Chief Trend Hunter at My keynote speaker bio (at has to be a sales pitch to book my keynotes, so this bio is more about me and why I am on this relentless mission to help people Find Better Ideas Faster!

I founded Trend Hunter because deep down, all I ever wanted to be was an entrepreneur, but I could never find my own business idea. Ironically, I built a corporate innovation career helping other people find their business ideas without finding my own. In my final year, I created an innovation pipeline that led my team at a bank to grow a $1 billion portfolio. That sounds great, but it was a striking reminder to me that I still hadn't figured out what I wanted to do.

So, in the wee hours of the morning, I started building Trend Hunter like a giant innovation focus group, an idea pipeline where I hoped people would share business ideas. I also figured somewhere, someone would help inspire me to find my calling. A couple billion pageviews later, and it's clear that serving the Trend Hunter community is my calling!
