Seso Raises $25M in Seed Funding

Apr 18, 2022

Seso , a San Francisco, CA-based workforce management platform for agriculture, closed $25m in Series A funding. The round was led by Index Ventures with participation from NFX and Founders Fund, K5 Ventures, Operator Partners, Shrug Capital, and The Chainsmokers’ Mantis Fund, as well as the founders of ServiceTitan, Flexport, Ramp, Workrise (formerly Rigup), and Motive (formerly KeepTruckin) and large farms in the U.S. The company intends to use the funds to build additional HR software and financial services to expand workers’ access to the financial system for the first time. Led by Michael Guirguis, Founder and CEO, and and Jordan Taylor, Seso is building an end-to-end recruiting and workforce management platform for the agriculture industry, which provides compliance, visa automation, applicant tracking, and workforce management tools. Seso streamlines the process of applying to the H-2A visa program. It also provides agricultural employers access to qualified labor through a database of thousands of H-2A workers. The software helps farms across the country find harvesters, communicate with workers, and keep track of work flows. By centralizing workforce management, Seso helps farms maintain labor compliance, transitions farms to digital (getting rid of paperwork), and enables farms to do their own recruitment. FinSMEs
