BXR Education

BXR Education

BXR Education is focused on finding and building Education businesses with significant and lasting positive educational impact.

BXR Group provides access to capital, a global network, strategic insight and extensive corporate finance and M&A experience evidenced by its successful track record.

What differentiates it from alternative providers of capital in Education is:

BXR Group does not typically participate in competitive auction processes because it wants to be an investment partner of choice.

Partnering with Founders & Management Teams

Partnering with founders or management is key to the BXR Group’s investment philosophy.

In any investment the BXR Group makes it expects to be the incumbent founder’s or management's chosen investor. Founders and management teams are typically co-owners of the business, with significant equity in each transaction. BXR Group aims to provide management with the incentive and the opportunity to deliver outstanding performance.

BXR Group helps managers deliver their growth plans through active participation with each portfolio company, formally with representation on the board of directors and through more informal interaction as appropriate.

BXR Group’s approach is flexible, providing full strategic support and involvement in all major decisions, whilst leaving day to day operational issues to the management team itself. Typical BXR Group initiatives include strategy definition, acquisitions and disposals and arranging optimal finance.

BXR Group team members typically work with management throughout the entire investment lifecycle, ensuring continuity and consistency of interactions.
