    Benjamin Franklin rightly said, ''An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest''; the only difference here is we mean it literally. Education has always played an integral role in the growth story of India and continues to do so. When one says India is all set to become the youngest nation by 2020, it can only happen if it's young people are healthy, educated and appropriately skilled to contribute optimally to the economy. Needless to say, there is a huge untapped market for Education. The Education sector in India is poised to witness major growth in the coming years as India will have world's largest tertiary-age population and second largest graduate talent pipeline globally by the end of 2020. Currently the Indian Education Market is estimated to be around $100 billion. Of this, Higher education contributes 59.7 per cent of the overall market, school education 38.1 per cent, pre-school segment 1.6 per cent, and technology & multi-media the remaining 0.6 per cent. With more than 1.5 million schools, 6.5 million teachers and 210 million students enrolled, India has one of the largest education systems in the world. Growing disposable income, willingness of people to spend on education coupled with various Government initiatives serve as key growth drivers for the sector. Robust growth potential has led to increased investor interest in the sector, resulting in a significant number of transactions in the same. Centrum has been working extensively on the Education sector and has successfully closed some significant transactions in this space.

    We have a dedicated Education sector team focused on Equity/Debt fund raising, Private Equity, IPO, advising on M&A, JVs etc. Some of our select education transactions are:
