The Thuzio Story
Thuzio was founded in 2012 by Tiki Barber (New York Giants), Mark Gerson (GLG), and Jared Augustine (Seamless/GrubHub) with a mission to create products that provide unique and unfiltered access to professional athletes and their stories.
First introduced in 2014, Thuzio Events celebrate renowned athletes and sports moments while showcasing the shared values of sports and business for an exclusive corporate community. Thuzio produces hundreds of events annually across 10+ U.S. and international markets.
At inception, Thuzio developed the first e-commerce powered marketplace for booking appearances with professional athletes. This original marketplace product was expanded to include influencers from every genre and rebranded in 2016 as Julius, our sister company and a leading influencer marketing software application.
