Consumer Players (needs): Gen Z & The Late Millennial

What does the young generation want to see in a platform?

· Purpose driven: Drove by a mutual sense of purpose

The “impact generation”: Gen Z are focused on finding meaning in their lives. Gen Z want a brand with purpose that values ethics & social responsibility.

· Style-centric & video — natives: Use cloths as a way to communicate

The “free-style (digital) generation”: Gen Z are looking to embrace freedom & share their “vibes” through clothes. Nearly all use YouTube and 50% say they can’t live without it.

· Authentic & freedom of expression first: “Be you” “Do you” is a lifestyle

The “no photoshop” generation: Gen Z are interested in real photo shoots, real people, not overly polished. Everything you say or do will be scrutinized for whether it’s “real” or not. Gen Z are the “depressed generation”: for the 55%, IG affect their self-esteem.

· Inclusivity Evangelists: Community unifies.

The “feedback generation” or the “less confident generation”: Gen Z seek daily feedback. Gen Z love being part of a community that let its members help each others and enhance self expression.

· Family — backed Street Shoppers: Want to both feel unique and part of a community

The “high-street generation”: Gen Z are known for their interest in online shopping and have a big say on family spending decisions. 80 percent of Gen Z purchases are influenced by social media.

The “personal brand generation”: Gen Z show a lot of initiative nurturing, maintaining and utilizing their online presence to their advantage, whether that be on Instagram, Twitch, YouTube or other platforms and apps.

· Crypto-friendly: Want to make extra cash with the new economy

The “self-made generation”: GenZ with higher student loans and faced with higher costs of living are open to new ways to make money autonomously, crypto investing and the possibility of what token economies could become.
