Opus, a New York-based provider of mobile-first learning platform for frontline workers, raised $2M in funding.
The round was led by Gutter Capital, joined by Metrodora Ventures (founded in 2020 by Chelsea Clinton).
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth through expanded product and sales teams.
Led by CEO Rachael Nemeth and VP Engineering Jeffrey Silver, Opus provides mobile-first training to businesses with a large distributed deskless workforce, the 110 million American workers who are working in frontline jobs in restaurants, ghost kitchens, universities, facilities companies, retail, construction, and sports. The proprietary platform allows employers to create, translate, and deliver custom microtraining that they can deliver in less than 10 minutes. Employees receive the training on their phones and complete it in three minutes. At the same time, managers can verify practical, on-the-job skills such as answering phones or forklift operation via their skill verification feature.
The company has grown to reach businesses in verticals spanning from manufacturing facilities to restaurant chains. In December 2021, Opus released their collaborative course authoring tool, as well as their iOS and Android app.
