Vizer is a social enterprise founded on the principle that change requires sustainability
Founded by cousins and co-founders Samantha Pantazopoulos and Dylan Barbour, Vizer is a family run business.
Sam and Dylan understand the value of health. They saw the consequences of unhealthy habits in their family, their communities, and themselves, so they set out with a goal of making good health achievable - regardless of circumstance.
CEO & Co-Founder
Sam has started (and stopped) more exercise routines than she can count.
While studying abroad on Semester at Sea, it was no different. Only this time, as she struggled with unhealthy habits, she was armed with a new perspective.
She was learning about social innovation and how business can be used as a tool to sustain social good. The potential blew her away, and she set out to build a tool that would make healthful living more accessible for all members of our community.
Sam is a brand strategist and connector of people and ideas. She started her first business at 8 years old, and in 2017, graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA).
She is a multi-time social entrepreneurship award winner and was named the Rising Star Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2019 Women's Venture Summit.
Chief Growth Officer & Co-Founder
Dylan's passion for fitness stems from his collegiate career as a dual NCAA varsity athlete in both Football and Track & Field.
His team mentality and roll-up-your-sleeves attitude led him to join Sam in building a stronger, healthier community.
Dylan graduated from Williams College with a BA in English and a minor in leadership studies. He then joined Morgan Stanley's Investment Management Division, while simultaneously pursuing the CFA designation.
Dylan completed CFA Level II and is a spreadsheet master and avid pick-up basketball player.
