Trend Hunter Setting Trends on the Web
(Telegraph / Post) A cultural kingmaker in sneakers, Gutsche is every bit the picture of a dot-com hipster. But unlike Facebook's twitchy, socially awkward impresario Mark Zuckerberg, Gutsche is more a genetic hybrid of motivational speaker Tony Robbins and infomercial dynamos Tony Little and Ron Popeil; his electricity is so palpable, you could charge an iPad on his abs.
Jeremy Gutsche -
(Nuvo) The avatar of cool-hunting, the man who created the phenomenally successful website Trend Hunter (TrendHunter.com) is not here to make you cool. He’s here to make you money. Perched sideways on a chair at Vancouver’s Terminal City Club, Gutsche looks like a solid advertisement for a lot of things—hairstyling products, fitness equipment, and whatever energy drink might make a man so irrepressibly perky even after an afternoon spent fielding questions from insurance company marketers.
Calgarian Bucking Global Trend
(The Sun) [Jeremy speaking] was the most energizing, inspiring and applicable piece of stand-up I have ever seen. And I've heard Bill Clinton speak, listened to enough Bill Gates on YouTube and sat through my fair share of Tony Robbins CDs.
(The Star) Gutsche is a pathfinder for the business illiterate and a therapist for the culturally overmatched. He sells people in suits the sense that they’ve got a handle on things. His book reads like Chicken Soup for the Confused Executive’s Soul.

tomorrow’s trends today
(The Sun) Not surprisingly Jeremy Gutsche, founder of Toronto-based online Trend Hunter Magazine, is always on the lookout for something new.
Trend Hunter was born while the 29-year-old was still earning his MBA. He later launched it as a place to find new ideas and interact with people of a similar mindset.
“I’ve always been insatiably curious, entrepreneurial and probably have a short-attention span,” he says. “What that means is, I was always looking for my next big business opportunity or a new idea.”
