This rock star ENTREPRENEUR is helping brands stay relevant and socially responsible.

Ziad Ahmed (he/him/his) is a 22-year-old who recently graduated from yale University. He is an American-Muslim-Bangladeshi speaker.
He is the CEO/Co-Founder of JUV Consulting (www.juvconsulting.com), a purpose-driven Generation Z community that works with clients to help them reach young people. The company has worked with over 20 Fortune 500 companies, has been profiled by the New York Times, and has established full-time offices. As a result of JUV, Ziad was named to the 2019 Forbes #30Under30 list at 19-years-old. Ziad started the company in 2016 (while in high school), and JUV has kept growing since as people continue to wake up to the power of young people.
Ziad also founded a non-profit, redefy (www.redefy.org), committed to furthering equality in 2013. Redefy has reached hundreds of thousands of young people digitally, has established chapters in 10+ countries around the world, and has been honored as a part of the Facebook Community Leadership Program. Through Redefy, Ziad has been recognized as a 2017 Global Teen Leader, a High School Trailblazer by MTV, and a Top 15 Young Prodigy Changing the World by Business Insider.
Ziad has also done significant work in progressive politics — having worked for the US Department of State, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign, Martin O’Malley’s 2016 Campaign, and Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman. He has also been a leader/advisor for Women’s March Youth Empower, Yara Shahidi’s EighteenX18, and various other campaigns/movements that focus on igniting young people to get more civically engaged.
Additionally, he has given four TEDxTalks, has spoken at forums such as the Council on Foreign Relations, has commentated for networks such as CNN, has written for publications such as Teen Vogue, and serves on boards such as the Marketing Advisory Board for DoSomething.org. He tries to use his voice wherever helpful to push the envelope — and tries to pass the mic as often as possible.
He has been personally commended by President Barack Obama for his work, and has had the honor of being invited to the Obama White House three times.
Overwhelmingly though, Ziad is just your average young person grappling with identity, struggling to balance it all, pursuing his passions, and spending way too much time on Instagram (@ziadahmed).
