It’s time to get strategic about winning over Gen Y. Members of the millennial generation, or Generation Y, were born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re the largest age cohort in human history, making up about 25 percent of the entire global population. When they’re mentioned in headlines, however, the news sounds bad for business: They’re broke. They’re self-obsessed. They’re not interested in your marketing strategy, and they’re definitely not buying your stuff. The truth is far more nuanced than that, and far less apocalyptic.
