A little bit about us.
In 2020, the Melbourne based startup had grown into an international company, with thousands of customers around the world and offices in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.
The Operoo product is a much loved system by it’s users, and has won numerous awards including the 2015 global Slush startup award where the company won a 650,000 euro investment. The founders knocked this back, preferring to grow the business with organic revenue.
In 2019, a consortium led by Peter Bencivenga, New Ground Ventures and ReThink Education, approached and invested in Operoo, with Peter becoming Operoo’s President for the Americas and joining founders, Troy Westley and Martin Howell, on the board.
The company continues to innovate at a rapid pace.
