For millennials, health and wellness is the name of the game and this is especially important to recognize in an age where millennial are poised to have more spending power than any other generation. Much like the S’well and the Hydro Flask water bottles, millennial are increasing physical investment in high-end goods and services that promise a healthier, active, and well-rounded life style.
From matcha tea and goat yoga to pet diets and celery juice, health and wellness are rising to become Millennials’ top priority, as opposed to career or religion. This change means that businesses, even the ones emerging out of USC’s entrepreneur ecosystem, needs to reorient and rebrand themselves to reach today’s buyers.
