More and more employers are complaining about the widening disconnect between what educators are delivering when they prepare students, and what employers want when they hire new personnel.
Yet, for private equity investors, this is a bright opportunity -- a number of innovative companies are providing new models of delivering career and skills-focused education.
These for-profit providers of professional instruction and training have the highest revenue growth among all segments of the total education marketplace.
They include corporate training specialists, competency-based program developers, enrichment specialists, boot camps, and other masters of lower-cost, higher-value products -- making up a huge sub-segment all their own.
And all are thriving because they serve multiple users. Some providers offer programs for companies with training departments, along with full services for companies who outsource. Some assist not-for-profit institutions by recruiting students and developing specialized programs. And some help K-12 institutions manage career readiness programs and rekindle vocational education.
You'll be ready to take advantage of the significant marketplace activity beyond the post-secondary space when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s specially-targeted ENCORE conference -- “Private Equity Investing in For-Profit Education Focused Companies -- Bridging the Educator-Employer Disconnect” -- being held in New York City, Thursday, July 30.
