Although COVID-19 has negatively impacted many small businesses, individuals have begun to step up to promote change. Another business that emerged during this pandemic is Rayze Consulting.
Rayze Consulting is a consulting company that aims to connect brands with GenZ’s youth to help them understand how to better reach and understand their customers. This innovative company was created by two high school sophomores, Rayyan Ahmed and Sahil Voona, who have a strong passion for business and serve as the co-CEOs of Rayze Consulting. During quarantine, as students at their business academy, they naturally noticed many small businesses were struggling with the transition to a virtual environment and wanted to help them adapt. So, they started Rayze Consulting, which aims to do just that, and in the future, they hope to reach with the largest brands and transform their processes so they can better understand GenZ.
Currently, Rayze Consulting offers four main services that include (but are not limited to): research, ideation and analyzation, execution, and optimization. For research, they will use primary and secondary resources to analyze the industry and market opportunities for the business. Next, for ideation and analyzation, they will analyze the data more in-depth and develop tailored ideas that the business can implement. Following that step, the ideas need to be executed through the execution step, such as recruiting ambassadors, influencers, telling them what to post, etc. Lastly, for optimization, they will make sure to analyze the execution and make the finishing touches. Although these are their main services, they do offer other services, such as influencer marketing and more! Businesses can pick and choose what they want to have done to reach a certain goal or request ideas too! If you are from a business and seek their help, contact them here. With all the work, time, and effort provided by the whole team, they do charge for their services! Rayze Consulting charges monthly, ranging from $250 to $10,000 per month based on the brand’s size and the task asked. For more information, email them or leave an inquiry on their website.
Apart from their typical services, they also aim to showcase various job, internship, and fellowship opportunities to other members of GenZ. To do this, they have an Instagram account called @genzjobs, which is used to inform other people about other opportunities available for GenZ. According to Rayze Consulting CEOs Sahil and Rayyan, Sabeen Safi, the Design Specialist on the social media team, spends ample time looking for these opportunities on LinkedIn and on other websites and promotes them on the account. Be sure to check out these wonderful opportunities!

Extra Segment: Entrepreneur’s Corner
A mini excerpt from the interview with the Rayze Consulting CEOs Rayyan Ahmed (RA) and Sahil Voona (SV), interviewed by Haarika Kalahasti (HK), the Founder of The Bizz USA.
Q (HK): What has been your biggest reward and challenge?
A (RA): “First, for the challenge: In the consulting field, there are no kids. The youngest people you’ll see are like 21-22-year-olds that are into it, and we’re high school students. So, getting into that field and being taken seriously has been the biggest obstacle so far.
As for our reward though, getting real-life experience has been amazing by working with these cool, big brands. We were just regular students before with no actual business experience, but getting this experience has been amazing and eye-opening for us . “
A (SV): Yeah, I would also say a reward has been working with these big brands and seeing the impact that they’re making on the world. It’s nice to be a part of that and it’s been kind of inspirational for me even.
Q (H): What grew your passion for business?
A (SV): “I think a lot of things, One of them being the program we have at our magnet school that we can apply to for sort of an academy for a specialized profession. We applied for the business program and I guess being around that environment with the teachers really helped cultivate our passion for business. And again, doing DECA and I think for me personally, I have lots of family memories that are involved in business, so it’s basically “in my blood” metaphorically.
A (RA): “I was interested in business from an early age. I did a few small businesses as a kid, like lemonade stand and other stuff. I also think the fact that there are so many different things you can do in business, like becoming a finance manager, entrepreneur, hedge fund manager, and more. So like, there are so many different things you can do and more flexibility because everything revolves around business at the end of the day.”
Q (HK): If you had to give advice to aspiring, young entrepreneurs, and business owners, what advice would you give?
A (RA): “Just go for it. When I was thinking of starting, I was a bit hesitant because I started questioning if it would work out. I would say to go for it even if you don’t know everything about it because you can learn on the way. There’s nothing better to teach you than having experience. Actually getting a project or getting into what you’re doing is a huge reward. Even if it doesn’t work out, you can still learn and grow from it.”
A (SV): “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. If you’re not going to try or not do anything, then you’re not going to know how you’re actually doing. Really you just got to go for it like Rayyan said, and if you have a passion, then do something with that passion and go grow from it. You want to go for it regardless of the outcomes and try your best but at the same time, you want to spend time to learn and grow.
