This is Worth of Mouth, a media platform which creates diverse Gen-Z engagement by sharing content to inspire, celebrate, and educate young people from underrepresented backgrounds within the UK.
What is the name of your business?
Worth of Mouth
What is the purpose of your business?
Worth Of Mouth is a media platform, which creates diverse Gen-Z engagement by sharing content to inspire, celebrate, and educate young people from underrepresented backgrounds within the UK.
We also use this knowledge and our platform to help businesses connect and market their products and services to Gen-Z Consumers.
What gave you the idea to set up this type of business?
I wanted to provide more positive press about young people, to counter the massive negative media surrounding young people, especially those from minority groups.
The business hopes to change narratives and allow audiences to discover new role-models by using positive representation to boost aspirations. We want to give these young individuals the confidence to take alternative paths to the stereotypical negative ones that we see so often in the media today.
What would be your elevator pitch?
I have created a place where young people can be inspired and have access opportunities to take action on that inspiration.
