The Hunt

The Hunt is changing the way that people shop online. Our fast-growing and altruistic community helps each other find the stylish items they see on Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest and out in the real world. 

As an increasing number of people draw their inspiration from the visual web, the demand for the items featured in images rises. In most cases, the products are not linked, and if they are, they may not meet the specific requirements (i.e, budget, size) of the person searching for the items. The Hunt is the glue that connects the visual web with e-commerce. 

People on the Hunt for things that they saw in social media images can post the image and their specific requirements like budget and size as context. The community then solves the Hunt by posting links to stores where the products can be purchased, channeling their problem solving skills and penchant for online shopping into a generous action that betters The Hunt community and solves the age old question, “Where did you get that?”
