GrainMate: local technological empowerment to improve global food security
Empodera Impact Stories talks with Isaac Sesi, founder and CEO of Sesi Technologies, a Ghanaian company that develops affordable technologies to solve problems in the world’s food systems with a focus on Africa. Sesi is an entrepreneur, engineer and innovator passionate about leveraging technology to solve some of Africa’s most pressing problems. He was part of a team that was researching viable, affordable post-harvest loss mitigation technologies that could easily be manufactured locally and scaled for the benefit of smallholder farmers in Ghana and beyond.
This is how GrainMate was born, a moisture meter for farmers. The philosophy behind GrainMate is to prove that simple and inexpensive technologies can have a huge impact in the lives of farmers and help improve global food security.
Isaac Sesi is also the co-founder of Nsesa Foundation, a STEM non-profit organization whose programs have already impacted more than 3.000 students in the whole of Africa.
