Get to know a little more about our business
At Ozmo, our mission is to answer every tech support question without human intervention. Since creating the world’s first virtual device years ago, Ozmo has established itself as the leading provider of tech support answers, helping tens of thousands of customer service agents and millions of customers troubleshoot issues with ease and confidence. At our core, we believe in helping make technology more accessible to all people.
Ozmo was officially founded in 2016 by David Catalano and Aaron Herrington, but at its core technology had been established years earlier. Before there was Ozmo, David and Aaron, both entrepreneurs at heart, founded a successful digital agency called Modea in 2006. During their time here working with telecom providers, they noticed a gap in support tools for agents. With over 15 years of experience working together, David and Aaron took their learnings from this period to focus solely on building a product that serves providers that struggle with solving tech support. Thus Ozmo was born.
Ozmo got its start making support content. We then built tools to make our content better, faster and more effective. We’ve gone from providing 100 pieces of content per device to answering thousands of permutations of search queries with that same content for a broad range of apps, services and devices. Ozmo is already solving support at scale for companies like TELUS, Google and Verizon across their entire ecosystem of support.
While our origin has supported the best mobile operators, Ozmo is expanding its platform far beyond where it began. In this age of connected homes and 5G, we must be prepared to answer millions of questions. Looking ahead, Ozmo is focused on delivering more answers to more people across more channels to make technology accessible to all people.

The Ozmo logo and name
Ozmonauts are frequently asked, “Where does the name Ozmo come from?” The name “Ozmo” is derived from “cosmos”, meaning the universe or system of thought and “osmosis”, the gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas and knowledge. Our logo is based on two simple shapes: a circle and an arrow. The shapes serve as simple building blocks for teaching and deconstruction. The circle can be used to highlight attention and the arrow can be used to point the way. Our icon is the condensed version of our logo and represents “an embrace” – the support that we offer agents and consumers in their time of need. The idea is that we can take any problem, no matter how complex, and solve it – fast and simple.
