Sesh is a neuroscience-based, people development company. We impart practices and create technologies that aid communication and increase performance.


The Problem

The new remote work & learning paradigm demands increased the use of video conferencing to sell, learn, train, and work. COVID-19 social-distancing measures have accelerated this trend.  Video communication reduces  our ability to read non-verbal cues from our clients, team and customers, as well as hinders our ability to build and  maintain trust and lowers our confidence in effective communication. 

The Solution

Empath by Sesh, gives you the ability to analyze and predict every person's state of mind in a video call.  Empath is emotional intelligence on demand. 

Empath interprets facial expressions and body movements to determine each person's state of mind, revealing deeper and often missed motivators in video conferencing environments. 

The outcome:  more effective communication, faster sale close ratios, increased trust and work team performance.  Decision intelligence to help you hire, sell, train, lead, teach, learn, and present more effectively. 

Empath provides you with analysis of a person's state of mind, as well as deep analytics for enhanced decision intelligence. You can now turn hidden insights into actionable outcomes. 

Current Traction

Alpha testing with user segments in sales, training, management, recruiting and social media to refine the value proposition for each segment and prepare the technology for our paid beta program set to launch this summer.  we've received dozens of organic sign ups in the first days since publishing our beta site at www.getempath.com

Frequently Asked Questions

Making an Investment in Sesh
How does investing work?

When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Sesh. Once Sesh accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Sesh in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Sesh.


What is the difference between preferred equity and a convertible note?

Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.

A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.

To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.


What will I need to complete my investment?

To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:

  1. Personal information such as your current address and phone number
  2. Employment and employer information
  3. Net worth and income information
  4. Social Security Number or passport
  5. ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)

Because Sesh is offering its securities under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, your status as an Accredited Investor will also need to be verified and you will be asked to provide documentation supporting your income, net worth, revenue, or net assets or a letter from a qualified advisor such as a Registered Investment Advisor, Registered Broker Dealer, Lawyer, or CPA.


What if I change my mind about investing?

Until a closing occurs, you may cancel your investment at any time, for any reason. You will receive an email when the closing occurs and your securities have been issued. If you have already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To cancel your investment, please go to your portfolio page by clicking your profile icon in the top right corner.


After My Investment
How can I sell my securities in the future?

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Sesh does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Sesh may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Sesh either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.


How do I keep track of this investment?

You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement.
