Opus Raises $2M in Funding


Funding of $2M was raised by Opus, a New York-based provider mobile-first education platform for frontline workers.

Gutter Capital was the leader of the round. Metrodora Ventures, which Chelsea Clinton founded in 2020, joined them.

The company plans on using the funds to increase growth via expanded product and sale teams.

Opus, led by Jeffrey Silver, VP Engineering and CEO Rachael Nimeth, provides mobile-first training to companies with a large distributed workforce. Opus serves the 110 million American workers in frontline jobs in restaurants and ghost kitchens, universities and facilities companies, retail and construction, as well as other positions such as engineering and sales. Employers can easily create, translate, deliver, and distribute custom microtraining in less than 10 mins using this proprietary platform. The training is delivered to employees’ phones via their smartphones and they can complete it in just three minutes. Managers can use their skill verification feature to verify employees’ practical skills, such as forklift operation or answering phones.

The company has grown to reach businesses across a range of verticals, from restaurants to manufacturing facilities. In December 2021, Opus released their collaborative course authoring tool, as well as their iOS and Android app.
