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:


  • Happy for you Jeremiah. I’ll echo what others have said… have no doubt you’ll be successful. Keep blazing new paths, and congratulations!

    Jeremiah, congrats on this bold step! Your explorations of the
    collaborative economy have changed my perspective on the future of
    business. This trend is still in its early days – there should be plenty
    of opportunity for someone with your insights to shape its direction.
    Best of luck in your new venture.

  • Break a leg, Jeremiah and best of luck.

  • 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.

  • Mithun Cotha

    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!

  • I’m very touched by all these comments, thank you all. Just amazing.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    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. 🙂
