In 2019, the founder and CEO of YOV, Justin Harrison, found himself staring down death on two fronts: his own, from a near fatal motorcycle accident, as well as his mother’s stage-4 cancer diagnosis. He was terrified of losing his mother and wanted something that could preserve the essence of their relationship. When Justin couldn’t find any existing technologies, he assembled a team of top AI specialists and YOV was born. 

Today, YOV utilizes proprietary, fully patented technology— powered by interaction-centric machine learning algorithms— to analyze both real-time and archived communications in order to build virtual personas that are virtually as complex and context-sensitive as the individuals they emulate.

In December 2021, Justin and the YOV team launched the world’s first posthumous communications service—known as Versona 1.0 (See Justin’s mom’s Versona). YOV was also featured in Input Magazine selected to pitch on The 2-Minute Drill on BloombergTV.

YOV is now just months away from the launch of the YOV communications system, which allows users to communicate effortlessly while building their Versonas in the background. Versonas can then be seamlessly introduced in existing messaging channels when one passes away– enabling uninterrupted communication and connection with a loved one after they have passed.

YOV is on a mission to help over 150,000,000 people preserve the essence of their relationships and continue communication with their loved ones by 2027.
