Seso Closes $26M in Series B Funding


Seso, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of a workforce management platform for agriculture, raised $26M in funding.

The round was led by BOND with participation from Index Ventures, NFX, SV Angel, and other investors.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its platform, including adding an AI-enabled payroll solution, a banking and remittance solution for farm workers, and a comprehensive HR platform purpose-built for agribusiness employers.

Led by CEO Michael Guirguis, Seso is a vertical software company for agriculture. It is addressing the growing shortage of farm labor in the U.S. by automating the H-2A visa process, creating a digital system of record to connect workers and growers, and providing workforce management software to farms. The company works to empower the people that grow food by providing agricultural workers with safe employment opportunities and providing employers with software to run the farm.

Since launching its software platform in 2021, hundreds of farms, including 27 of the 100 largest employers in the industry, have adopted Seso as their labor management solution. Last year alone, the company signed up more than 88,000 workers for seasonal jobs.
