Private equity firms have felt hesitant about investing in post-secondary education companies for the past decade or so — since the Great Recession and since 2010 when the Obama administration introduced the Gainful Employment Rule.

 

But times are changing.  Recently several deals reflect renewed interest by PE investors in this sector –

 

  • Renovus Capital Partners bought Rasmussen College, a healthcare-focused college system with 10,000 students across 22 campuses.
  • Toronto’s Altas Partners bought the University of St. Augustine from Laureate Education in a deal worth $400 million.
  • Colibri Group, backed by Charlottsville’s Quad-C Management, acquired Allied Business Schools, which offers online real estate certification education.
  • Dallas’s NCK Capital purchased Chicago-based Tricoci University of Beauty Culture.

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for the education industry and survey the prospects for its various subsectors at this all-day conference, chaired by Bradley Whitman, founding partner at Renovus Capital Partners.

Three key reasons why you should join us: 

  1. Hear how higher education is being remade to better support employers’ and students’ needs.
  2. Understand which education sub-sectors are most appealing.
  3. Get insight into the long-term regulatory outlook.

 

The opportunity in the post-secondary sector is much larger than just investments in for-profit colleges. For instance, many traditional colleges are adopting some aspects of for-profit models and looking for partners.

 

TPG Rise fund is partnering with Arizona State University to roll out a company that will work with employers who want to offer their workers online access to ASU’s programs. Both University of Massachusetts and State University of New York are planning national online colleges for adult learners, and considering partnerships with online program managers.

 

And it isn’t just post-secondary education that’s hot. At the other end of the age spectrum, PE firms are interested in preschool childcare businesses, such as –

  • The Learning Experience, recently purchased by Golden Gate Capital
  • Partners Group-backed KinderCare Education acquired Troy, Michigan-based Rainbow Child Care Center from Quad-C Management.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.
