Ziad Ahmed is a 24-year-old social entrepreneur. He is the CEO/Founder of JUV Consulting, a Gen Z company that works with clients to help them connect with young people. Since 2016, JUV has worked with over 30 Fortune 500 companies, has been profiled by the New York Times, has launched major purpose-driven TikTok campaigns, and has hosted the first ever major industry conference with only Gen Z speakers, #ZCON. Because of JUV, Ziad was named to the 2019 Forbes #30Under30 list when he was 19-years-old.
Ziad also graduated from Yale in 2021, where he focused his research on social media’s impact on policy-making. He speaks often on the power of his generation, and he seeks to use his voice to push the envelope forward wherever/however possible. As a result of Ziad’s leadership within his generation, he was selected in 2023 as an inaugural Obama USA Leader by the Obama Foundation. Overwhelmingly though, he’s just another Gen Zer spending way too much time on TikTok. You can learn more about him via @ziadahmed.
