History was launched in 2005 by Jeremy Gutsche, an innovation expert and award-winning author who wanted to build a home for new business ideas and creativity.

Jeremy describes, "Like many of us, I was an entrepreneur at heart, but I didn't know what idea I wanted to pursue. I chose careers that I thought would lead me to my business idea... but after years of searching, I was still hunting for inspiration. It was then that I started Trend Hunter - a place for insatiably curious people to share ideas and get inspired."
