Educate Global makes private equity investments in for-profit businesses with a direct impact on the educational outcomes of children and young people, initially within the East African region. Our cross-sector approach to investment drives private capital into five high-growth industries which directly support education delivery: Health, Nutrition, Sanitation, Energy and Technology.
We typically invest between $5m to $10m in capital, bringing operational and management experience that enables our companies to achieve their ambitious goals. We look for investee companies with the potential to scale to become â€śregional championsâ€ť, with the right intangible assets to grow and endure.
Our local team work side-by-side with our portfolio companies, applying their on-the-ground knowledge and experience to build profitable expansion strategies, to strengthen capabilities and to improve performance.
In this way, we are able to secure competitive returns for our investors, whilst delivering long-term impact on educational outcomes, improving the effectiveness of existing government funding and creating quality local employment opportunities for women and young people.
Educate Global was established in September 2015, to offer institutional investors a dedicated and disciplined private equity investment approach, designed to directly address the challenges outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With offices in Nairobi and London, our growing team have over 60 years of combined experience in regional and international private equity investing and investment management.
We are supported by industry-leading executives, investment committee members, special advisors and operating partners. Our global network of co-investors, business partners and sector specialists add significant value to our investments.
