Our Story

We believe in the power of people: as creators, as storytellers, and as icons

At the core of every experience is a story to be told, and every story needs a person to tell it. We launched Julius to help brands find the right people to tell their stories in more meaningful and intimate ways than ever before.

Our clients come from a variety of backgrounds and industries and rely on Julius to power their influencer marketing campaigns. At the core of every campaign and every activation on Julius are the people: the influencers, marketers, and consumers.
