Gen Z

Eager to regain the freedom they lost during the global pandemic, Gen Z is ready to change the world, shaping future consumer behavior and with that also impacting brands.

You’ve probably heard of them as Post-Millennials, iGeneration, Zoomers or Generation Z … fact is they are the generation that never knew life without Google. This digitally native generation is social-media-literate, always-on and hyper-informed, and they grew up against the backdrop of social upheaval and climate change.

Today, Gen Z is the world’s largest generation cohort, accounting for one third of the global population. They have the fastest-growing disposable income, which is expected to reach $33 trillion over the next decade. So, no matter what you call this generation, your business future depends on them.

Want to know who Gen Z are and how your brand can connect with this woke consumer?

So, where to start? What does sustainability mean for your brand?

Innovation

Innovation is high on the agenda for many organizations, yet incumbents and established companies often struggle with the speed and quality of innovation, and are challenged by successful disruptors and start-ups. The old ways of innovating often lack the DNA of what makes the disruptors successful: friction, passion and pilot.

Our innovation research is designed around an iterative approach which structurally integrates these three DNA elements.
