After graduating from TED Ankara College, Tolga studied Computer Science and Statistics in Baskent University in Ankara (TUR) where he played 6 years of semi-professional American football. After receiving his Bachelor’s, Tolga moved to San Diego to be a part of the Palomar College Comets Football team. In the meantime, he received more education in Interactive Media and 3d Animation Design.
Tolga worked for Spin Master Studios in Santa Monica where he co-designed “Tech Deck Live,” one of the first web based 3d social games created in Los Angeles. Tolga has designed social applications and online platforms for brands such as Ford Mustang, Spotify, MTV, Cinemax, and Marriott Hotels while working with Sabertooth Interactive and HYFN. Shortly after, Tolga was responsible for Global User Acquisitions at EA Mobile, where he worked on the cross platform promotion of brands such as Sims, Need For Speed, Fifa, Madden NFL, Tetris and Simpson’s Tapped Out. Tolga also designed EA Mobile’s previous branding.
Tolga started the mobile app development division and a partnership with the Nclusive Creative Agency where he co-founded and designed Curbstand. A few months later, Tolga started Thunderbolt simultaneously with the launch of Curbstand, a mobile application and a logistics software designed specifically for valet companies. Curbstand received $1.1M funding 30 days after its first launch. Thunderbolt acquired its second partnership with Grassp, the first on-demand Medical Cannabis Delivery & Logistics application. Grassp has raised $1.5M after the development of first MVP. Acquisition of these projects determined the current business model of Thunderbolt.
