Mercenary real estate agents, shifty landowners, fraudulent title documents, unrealistic prices, cutthroat contracts — in some cases, no agreements. All these and many more contribute largely to the tedious process of getting a house.
At the bedrock of most of these problems is the issue of trust. And Africa-focused proptech, Seso Global, is looking to solve that.
The journey began after Phillip Jarman, Daniel Bloch, and Eugene Badzongoly met in Johannesburg, South Africa, in August 2017.
After winning a contract in Nigeria in 2018, the startup set up an engineering team in Accra, Ghana, going through different iterations for its Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform.
As the company’s first investor, in 2017, Kweku Essien, VP Partnerships, joined Seso as an ambassador before taking on his current role in 2019.
In 2019, Seso officially launched in Nigeria and South Africa and did so in Ghana in 2020. The startup also has sales teams in Dubai, the UK, and the US.
