Venturi Partners

Venturi Partners, a prominent growth equity firm specialising in consumer investments across India and Southeast Asia, has invested $27 million in K12 Techno Services, acquiring the stake from Navneet Learning LLP, a subsidiary of Navneet Education Limited. K12 Techno is a key player in India’s private education sector, providing a range of educational services to over 800 private institutions, serving more than 300,000 students across multiple brands. The company has recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 40% over the past five years.

Nicholas Cator, founding partner at Venturi, commented, “Our values are well-aligned with K12 Techno’s goal of using technology to offer world-class holistic learning and improve educational outcomes at scale.”

Venturi Partners’ investment underscores India’s significant demand-supply imbalance for quality education. K12 Techno is ideally positioned to utilise technology to provide students with superior academic curricula, advanced teaching methodologies, and experiential learning opportunities.

Investing from its $180 million maiden fund, Venturi will join existing shareholders, including Peak XV Partners, Kedaara Capital, Sofina Ventures, and Navneet Learning LLP, in supporting the leadership of Jai Decosta, CEO of K12 Techno.

Jai Decosta, CEO of K12 Techno, stated, “This collaboration brings us closer to our mission of creating a brighter future through holistic learning experiences. By combining technology with bespoke learning approaches suited to the Indian environment, we aim to broaden our impact and elevate educational outcomes.”

K12 Techno will be integrated into Venturi Partners’ portfolio, focusing on consumer-oriented investments in India and Southeast Asia, including companies such as Livspace, Country Delight, Believe, Pickup Coffee, and DALI.
