University Ventures focuses on growth investments that establish innovative programs and services for the global higher education market. We develop theses as to which areas and models are attractive and investible, and then seek platforms and entrepreneurs best positioned to execute on these opportunities.
UV investments typically fall into one of two categories. First, companies involved in delivering programs, products or services that dramatically improve the accessibility and affordability of higher education. Second, companies involved in delivering high-value programs, products or services that provide a clear and indisputable return on investment to students.
UV’s areas of interest within the global higher education market include higher education and training for healthcare professionals, STEM programs, technology-based services, transnational higher education, integrating content and brands from outside traditional higher education with curricula and programs from leading colleges and universities, and assisting colleges and universities in improving content, distribution and delivery for traditional higher education programs.
