Jeremiah’s new venture; moving on from Altimeter

I’m starting a new company to help progressive corporations tap into the Collaborative Economy.

I’ll be leaving Altimeter in my current role, but will remain connected as I join Altimeter’s Board of Advisors.

One of the advantages of being an industry analyst is being able to see what’s coming in the future.  To address this transformation, large corporations are going to need help to manage this radical market change.  In the coming weeks, I’ll share my plans for this new venture.

It’s amazing to see four years at Altimeter Group go by so quickly.  We’ve accomplished so much. The kickoff, our first conference, and the publication of Open Research reports, we have helped clients adopt disruptive technologies.

My business partner of four years, Charlene Li, has been very supportive of me in launching this next venture, and shares her thoughts.  As I continue to support the firm, I’ll be finishing up specific client projects, and I’ll be joining Altimeter’s board of advisors where I’ll continue to support the firm.

Perhaps most important, I will continue my friendships with all the great folks at the firm that I care about so deeply.  Altimeter clients will still be able to work with analysts like Charlene Li, Brian Solis, Susan Etlinger, Rebecca Lieb, and the growing consulting and research team.

I’d love to hear from you, contact me if you want to discuss this exciting new opportunity (or peruse my body of work) as progressive corporations tap the Collaborative Economy:

  1. Best wishes – the Business models are changing and so are consumers. Go hard and enjoy yourself 🙂

  2. Good Luck Jeremiah, looking forward to reading your upcoming research on the Collaborative Economy. Hope you cover industries that one would never expect to follow the CE business model–surprise us!

  3. Congratulations Jeremiah! Looking forward to learning more about how you plan to help organizations tap into a collaborative approach to business.

  4. From our early conversations on this last month, you know how I feel. You are definitely on to something, the question is whether or not the corporations realize it fully. If you stay focused on the ones who understand the status quo is being turned on its head, and don’t try to convince the one’s who still question it, I think you will find great success. It’s easy to get trapped into needing to convince the ultimately unconvinceable, but stay with people who see the same or similar future as you do and I think you will find great success.

    And keep telling great stories of great possibilities. I think the bottom line in all of this is ultimately that it is a more efficient system for everyone… As I’ve long said, this is still the unrealized promise of IT, to provide visibility into the market that affords us greater predictability and maximizes our utilization.

    As long as we can still find a way to garner enough capital for the shared infrastructure needed to keep it working (ie, hoover dam commercial and similar on MSNBC). I still think one of the biggest infrastructure opportunity within the collaborative economy is the simplification for taxation systems in multi-jurisdictional complexity, particularly targeted at the end users. And for that, the ebay experience is very useful to learn from.

    Good luck my friend, looking forward to sharing some parts of the journey with you.

  5. If there’s anyone who can bring the vision to reality, it’s you my friend. I’ve been a fan of yours since the Forrester days and I wish you nothing but success for the future. Can’t wait to see you do more great things!

  6. It’s been a career highlight collaborating with you as an analyst at Altimeter, and I’m looking forward to finding more ways to work together going forward. Wishing you the very best of luck with the new venture, Jeremiah!

  7. Congrats sir. Really excited to hear of your next endeavors – I’m a believer in all things Jeremiah!

  8. Good luck with the new endeavor! Collaborative Economy will be a huge field and many, many companies won’t be ready for it!
    Especially in the industries of medical equipment for extension of life quality for seniors and their caretakers.

  9. There are two types of people that start industry groups. Those that simply wish to profit on a trend, and those that wish to truly innovate and lead in a nascent space. Anyone who knows Jeremiah or has read any of his excellent work or has seen him speak knows he is in the leadership group. There’s no doubt about this, or about the promise of his new venture. Congratulations, Jeremiah!

  10. Good luck in your new venture, Jeremiah! This is a very exciting development for anyone watching the Collaborative Economy. Can’t wait to see what you get up to.

  11. Congratulations Jeremiah. You’re skating to where the puck is going to be, again. I wish you continued success.

  12. I’m so excited for you Jeremiah and as you know, very supportive of this new economy! Looking forward to learning from you and watching you become a leader in the collaborative economy. Congratulations!

  13. Jeremiah, you’re one of the people who defined social media and gave others a foothold in the profession in its earliest days. Nice job helping take social media and social business from the realm of fad to that of bona fide corporate communications practice. Like everyone, I am always looking forward to your next venture which is certain to be successful and groundbreaking.

  14. Congratulations, Jeremiah! Your embrace of the collaborative economy — personally and professionally — makes you well suited as a counselor to brands as they try to make sense of this economic shift.

  15. What a fertile playground! I haven’t seen any real demonstration of brands building businesses within the collaborative economy, and you’re perfect for developing that bridge.

  16. Godspeed Jeremiah. Your contributions to the space – and subsequent ones I’m sure – have really helped define, strengthen, and herd the industry when needed by providing knowledge, perspective, insight and major IQ 🙂 So thank you for that so very much!

  17. I’m excited to see what you do with this; I’ve been enjoying reading your research and talking to you about this area over the last year.

  18. Bold move! I’m looking forward to hearing more about it when you present at the Conversations and Cocktails event in New York on Oct. 1.

  19. Congrats. I know this is an area that you have huge passion for, and I know you’ll rock it. There are the seeds of a massive change afoot and you know this space as well as anyone. Looking forward to hearing more soon!

  20. Congratulations! I’m thrilled for you. As always, you’re better on the future and are going to take an industry and corporations along with you for the ride.

  21. Congrats on this, Jeremiah. We are looking forward to having you in Austin in late October at SpiceWorld to talk about the collaborative economy and any number of exciting ventures. Best of luck to you!

  22. Your passion on this topic came through loud and clear when you sat down with Mitch for his SPOS podcast. It got me fired up thinking about these businesses from this perspective. Best of luck, and looking forward to reading more about it!

  23. Congratulations, Jeremiah! You are definitely on to what’s happening now, and you’ll bring so much value to innovation in the collaborative economy. I look forward to more conversations with you, as that’s an area where I’m working a lot right now, too. All the best to you, and I’m glad you’ll remain on Altimeter Group’s Board of Advisors.

  24. What a great move, Jeremiah — the earliest of the early movers in an emerging field. The very best of luck to you, though I suspect luck will have nothing to do with your success!

  25. Based on the comments by the luminaries commenting before my arrival here, you will be both missed at Altimeter and blessed and followed into the future. Cheers and success.

  26. 4 years, that’s the time i took up my first job as Social Media Analyst with Autumn Worldwide back then & started following you & you have become my all time favorite!
    I always get inspired when you are speaking! Great to see you sharing your progress Jeremiah. I am wishing only the best of luck from my side!

  27. Looking forward to more fruits of your labor (and passions), Jeremiah. You’re onto something with Collaborative Economy thinking and execution. Crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, social business, cloud computing, mobile, mass creativity, sustainable design, etc. … all coming together nicely.

  28. Very excited for you for the next opportunity. You (your whole team’s) work at Altimeter has helped push the industry forward and I expect more of the same. Here to help!

  29. All the best in the new endeavors. I hope you’ll keep up the blogging and open research practice. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts over the last few years.

  30. This is exciting news for you… I’ll look forward to updating my Feedly to read about your new ventures. I’ve learned a great deal from you. Thank you!

  31. Could not be more excited for you and this move, Jeremiah. Big congrats and look forward to supporting your new venture.

  32. What exciting news! Thrilled not only for you, but also for the collaborative space. Having you in this new capacity will help everyone and be a huge opportunity for all to shine.

  33. Jeremiah!!! What exciting news. Seeing the energy with which you’ve been covering “The Collaborative Economy” over the past few moths, I can’t saw this move completely surprises me. I wish you the very best of luck with your next chapter. I know we’ll keep in touch. After all, we always have Facebook. 🙂

  34. Congratulations, my friend! I am sure you will be incredibly successful. Do let me know how I can help!
