Sonny Patel

Founder and CEO

Sonny  Patel is the Founder & CEO of Insurmi, a white-labeled, conversational  artificial intelligence (AI) platform designed to help insurers easily  generate new business online, streamline claims, and provide excellent  customer service, a company he founded at the age of 21. Sonny realized a  passion for purpose-driven technology early and founded Insurmi to solve many  of the customer access, service, and engagement problems he saw working at a  life insurance agency at the age of 19. At Insurmi, Sonny leads by  hard-working example, embraces innovation by building a disruptive  technology-driven business, executes on growth strategy, and works to be an  active and integral part of Arizona's start-up community. Sonny is a  recognized member of the Global Innovation Fellows, a U.S. State Department  program for emerging American entrepreneurs and innovators who are committed  to international dialogue that promotes shared economic prosperity and  inclusive innovation. He and Insurmi were selected as part of the 2018 cohort  of the Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA), and for inclusion in the Spring  Batches of both Plug and Play Silicon Valley and Singapore in 2019.  

   A well-regarded communicator, Sonny is frequently in demand for speaking  engagements, and has spoken recently at the Global Insurance Symposium,  Dig|In, BrokerAge Event (Singapore), and IASA. He has given presentations in  front of top tier insurance companies, including Principal Financial, Farm  Bureau Financial Services, and Allstate, and pitched to the 1 Million Cups  audience in Des Moines, Iowa. Sonny holds a B.S. in Entrepreneurship from  Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University.
