Triller Buys Thuzio

Los Angeles-based social video sharing app Triller announced this morning that it has acquired Thuzio, which runs business-to-business premium influencer events and experiences. Financial terms of the buy were not announced. According to Triller, it will use the acquisition to grow its live event programming. Thuzio was founded in 2012 by former NY Giants great Tiki Barber and entrepreneurs Mark Gerson and Jared Augustine, and offers up access to figures in the sports, entertainment, culinary, and business world through interactive events and interviews to businesses. According to Triller, those events are run as a “way to inspire their customers and sales teams.”
