Who We Are
Located in Kumasi, in the middle of Ghana, Sesi Technologies is made up of young people from diverse fields, working together to fulfill a big purpose – to create and live in a world where poverty and hunger does not exist.
Our mission is to lead the way to no poverty and zero hunger in emerging markets by empowering farmers and businesses with affordable technology solutions.
Our story began in March 2018, when our founder, Isaac Sesi decided to commercialize the output of a research project he worked on as a Research Engineer at his former university, KNUST.
He had led a small team to locally redesign and improve a grain moisture meter that had been developed by Dr Paul Armstrong, an agricultural researcher at the US Department of Agriculture under the Feed The Future Post-harvest Loss Innovation Lab.
After learning about the pressing global problem of post-harvest losses and realizing the impact this simple technology could make in the lives of smallholder farmers, he decided to found Sesi Technologies to put this technology in the hands of the 33 million smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The company’s products and services have since grown beyond the moisture meter and now include a suite of technologies and services aimed at creating lasting prosperity for African smallholder farmers and helping agribusinesses reduce losses, maximize productivity and increase their income.
Between 2018 and now, Sesi Technologies has delivered products and services that have impacted the lives of more than 2000 farmers and agribusinesses in Ghana and beyond, collaborated with the World Food Programme and other international partners and has grown from a 1-person team to more than 12 passionate young people working to create a better life for farmers through technology.
Our efforts have won us several prestigious awards in the process including the first GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize.
