Yusuf Ahmed’s Plan to Go from Football Player to Influencer to Physician

Yusuf Ahmed, class of 2025, is a Davidson College football player who embarking on an entrepreneurial journey with a mission to become a content creator. 

At the outset, Yusuf, a Try It! Fund winner, will establish a dedicated social media platform specifically tailored to young Muslim men aspiring to achieve success in fitness, entrepreneurship, and their religious journey. On this platform, he aims to regularly post motivational content that seamlessly combines religion and fitness. 

Furthermore, Yusuf Ahmed’s long-term vision involves cultivating a significant niche following. His following of Muslim young men will provide the foundation to expand his entrepreneurial pursuits. Specifically, he plans to market fitness-related products, supplements and training gear. His strategy involves first promoting third-party products for commission and then developing his own line of products for sale.

Looking ahead, Yusuf Ahmed aspires to become a physician, with a particular interest in health and alternative medicine. He firmly believes that building a substantial social media following will facilitate the establishment of his own online medical practice.

While his idea is still evolving, Yusuf Ahmed recognizes the tremendous market potential for a social media platform catering to his target audience. He is determined to leverage this opportunity to initiate his entrepreneurial journey.
