OpenSesame Adds $8.1M for Workforce Training Platform

OPENSESAME: $8.1 million to OpenSesame in a Series A round led by Partech Ventures, whose general partner, Nicolas El Baze, will join the board. The Portland-based startup has raised just over $10 million after a $2 million seed round in 2011. The company offers an online platform of over 20,000 courses from 300-plus providers on a variety of workplace training, from basic K-12 subjects to management skills and compliance regulations. OregonLive reports the company looks to hire six to 10 employees to shore up marketing and engineering efforts.

Editor's note: SEC filings indicate the company raised $8.192 million in this round and previously $6.04 million, for a total funding of $14.232 million.
