About Us


Persimmon AI was created to fulfill a need for smart, data-driven software in the healthcare and insuretech industries – powered by AI.

We’re currently developing OTC Finder™, the first web-app that does matching of OTC medications to help new arrivals in the USA, and also helps Americans find appropriate OTCs.

We are problem solvers at heart and everything we do follows our core values. We follow the TRIAD approach:

  • Teamwork
  • Resilience
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Discipline
