Why Gen Z?
Numbering 65 million in the US, Generation Z is a powerful consumer group with an annual purchasing power of $143 billion. Having grown up with constant mobile access to information and at a time of skepticism over fake news, they have learnt to filter content fast. They’ve turned on ad-blockers and tuned out of inauthentic influencer promotions to escape the branded content flood.
Teens are great, natural-born content creators - and they trust one another’s content more than brands, influencers and celebrities.
YEAY thought it was about time to let them take over, which is why the company has the youngest ever advisory board - all outstanding Generation Z entrepreneurs from around the world.
