How Persistence AI was Founded in 2018

In 2018, Jesse Teron and Ed Holloway, founded Persistence AI as a solution to the problem Jesse had identified in his own business and amongst business owners while he was running his local painting company in Canada.


Anytime a new digital lead came in, Jesse would do his best to follow up with them right away knowing he had a small window of opportunity to turn that lead into a prospect and then to a paying customer.


He noticed that when he was unable to follow up in the first 5 minutes, it became increasingly unlikely, he would turn that lead into a customer.


He began to see and hear about other businesses having this problem as well.


The opportunity cost loss of these digital leads was huge.


There are customers that want and desire services but their communication needs weren't being met or at least not consistently met.


The current way of managing digital leads is inefficient for business development. Highly skilled sales teams are chasing unpredictable, unqualified leads when they should be handling and closing qualified prospects.


Jesse teamed up with software veteran, Ed, to solve this problem.


They both knew businesses could grow quicker and easier while the customers could have a much better experience along the way.


With Ed's diverse background in software, and helping build the Azure platform at Microsoft®, he helped bring a new take on what lead conversion could look like.


By combining Jesse's expertise in business and Ed's expertise in software and artificial intelligence, Persistence AI was born.


Persistence AI is a top performing human + AI software that communicates with your top of funnel leads through texting and phone calls to qualify and nurture them into prospects and then into sales ready inbound opportunities for your sales team.


Jesse took over as CEO in the latter part of 2021.


Persistence AI has evolved immensely since inception with the main focus of helping real estate teams and organizations across North America.


Persistence AI's lead conversion platform is designed to convert new leads as well as convert stale leads in your database to reduce your organization's cost per acquisition.
