About Opolis

Vision & Purpose

Opolis' purpose is to enable solopreneurs, the self-employed, and independent workers to choose the way they want to work and to express their unique creativity. To choose...from where, with whom, and how much makes sense to them and their personal goals. 

Genesis

Opolis was birthed by the vision of a more egalitarian global employment framework: A platform that brings tools and infrastructure to independent workers whereby they design their work in a way that suits their personal lifestyle preferences.


With an estimated 90 million self-employed workers by 2028 in the U.S. alone, current toolsets are either out-of-date or non-existent for this population of workers. Up to now, virtually all employment and HR technology is designed toward corporations as the primary ‘customer’.


Opolis represents a new paradigm for employment. One where mutualistic outcomes prevail for workers and the projects they serve. 

Why the name "Opolis"?

Opolis is a combination of the Greek words “Opus” and “Polis”. Opus translates to "work" while Polis is the Greek word for “community” or “city”. Opolis is "Work City". You can think of Opolis as an Employment Cooperative, or if you prefer, a City of Opportunity for its Members.

The meaning behind the "O"

The Opolis “O” symbol isn’t really an “O” at all. It’s a ‘Golden Ellipses’. A Golden Ellipses incorporates the Golden Ratio (a commonly used ratio in art and architecture of 1.618) to demonstrate an aesthetic balance between space and form. Opolis has incorporated this concept into its core logo mark to demonstrate its commitment to balance of equity within the ecosystem.

Magnum Opolis

The Opolis WORK Rewards Program is embodied in the Magnum Opolis. Inspired by the Magnum Opus (or "Great Work"), the Magnum Opolis (or "Great Work City") represents the alchemic transformation of employment from a corporate activity to one of self-sovereignty. Each stained glass pane also represents the diverse communities that culminate our "community of communities" mantra.
