Content creator management platform to expand team, explore new verticals

Influencer platform Opera Event has raised $5 million in a Series A funding round led by Antera Inc.

Other investors participating in the round included Atlas Ventures, Konvoy Ventures, and Everblue Asset Management.

Opera Event is an influencer management platform that helps content creators organize and administrate teams -- over 60 esports teams are participating so far.

With this new funding round, Opera Event plans to hire more developers and up its sales and marketing initiatives, as well as explore new verticals.

"Opera Event has made very impressive inroads in the esports category, and we see amazing potential in their state-of-the-art programmatic tools in an industry in desperate need of proper systems, control, and scale," said Antera managing director Dushan Batrovic.
