About Us

Hello! We’re Acorn, we’re building technology to help organizations implement AI-powered solutions that are powerful, intuitive and secure.

The emergence of LLMs and AI-powered applications is creating a once-in-a-generation opportunity to re-imagine how we as humans interact with systems and data.
At Acorn we’re building an open source LLM stack that can be run by organizations to provide AI-powered services that utilize private data, corporate intranets, internal databases and critical applications.
We aim to go beyond the chat interface and apply LLMs to new and existing applications.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
