Private equity investors in education-focused companies are watching closely as the U.S. presidential race heads into its final stretch.
In a space that depends heavily on federal loans and grants while also being constrained by federal regulators, the philosophy of the country’s next administration is a central concern.
Washington, which backs over $1 trillion in student loans, has an outsized footprint in education. Although many education-focused businesses don’t depend directly on the money, they serve customers who do.
You’ll gain valuable insight as our panelists assess the outlook for education at large and survey the prospects for its varied subsectors when you attend The Capital Roundtable’s all-day conference on “Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies” on Tuesday, July 26, in New York City.
Our 20 panelists will address such key points as –
Will a new administration head in a more conservative, free-market direction? Or will it intensify a more liberal, hands-on approach?
Even as the sprawling sector is caught between the two extremes, savvy middle-market PE investors see solid opportunities.
While there’s a chilly market in for-profit higher education as the parent of the struggling University of Phoenix works to go private, the education-technology sector is bustling amid a surge in young companies with new answers to old challenges.
In between, investors are surveying a diverse field that includes K-12 education services, vocational schooling, corporate training, testing security, career placement, and more.
And federal regulators’ role also has a distinct ripple effect. The potential impact of the new administration’s policies -- whichever candidate is elected president -- is enormous.

At a Key Moment for the Space
Americans concur that education is critically important, generating benefits that start at the individual level and continue right up to the national level.
The question is what kind of education, training, and instruction -- and how to provide it efficiently, effectively, and equitably in an era marked by rapid technological advances and economic upheaval.
