Nigerian proptech startup Seso Global launches regional offices in US and the UK
To better engage with communities in the diaspora, Nigerian proptech startup Seso Global has launched regional offices in the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK). The new regional offices will also enable the startup to build partnerships that make it safe and easy to successfully invest in African real estate.
Launched in 2019, Seso allows property developers, agents, and governments to manage their properties, documentation, and transactions on a secure blockchain database. They do this through the firm’s customer relationship management (CRM) system.
Once verified, properties are listed on the Seso marketplace where clients can browse properties and interact with further service providers such as banks for mortgages and law firms for title registrations.
''The rapid development of real estate industries in major African countries has seen a concurrent rise in demand for property across the continent. In particular, African real estate has become an attractive investment option for forward-thinking investors and diasporans seeking to establish themselves in their homelands. However, investors still need strategic support from verified and experienced real estate players in order to ensure successful outcomes. Seso Global’s expansion in the US and UK greatly enhances the organisation’s ability to provide world-class real estate services. Seso Global will now have permanent offices staffed with expert sales representatives who will exclusively cater to clients with diverse interests in African real estate,'' the startup said.
Seso Global has expanded across other African countries. In November 2019, it launched its first pilot in South Africa entered Ghana in May 2020, launching a blockchain property portal in partnership with the British High Commission Accra. In June last year, the startup raised $600,000 in pre-seed funding.
