Education is the lubricant that keeps engines of free societies from seizing up. Yet as a viable investment class, education and workforce development is an emerging asset class, barely a few decades old. In the United States alone, the sector accounts for more than $1.5 trillion of the economy – nearly 10% of our gross domestic product and second in scale only to healthcare. Nevertheless, private market activity is exploding. Chessiecap is at the forefront of this dynamic market transformation.

As the leader of Chessiecap's Education, EdTech & Workforce Development practice, Bill Bavin has advised clients throughout this dynamic sector of the economy for more than two decades. His experience and clients have spanned the entire life-long learning continuum from pre-K12 to post-secondary to training & development, as well as the education value chain from content to educational services to infrastructure companies.

With more than $1.5 trillion spent annually, the Education industry comprises nearly 10% of the U.S. economy, second only to Healthcare. Education and Workforce Development activities permeate nearly every sector of the economy. An increasingly specialized knowledge-based economy is driving the need for formalized life-long learning, promoting long-term growth in the industry. Furthermore, technology is a disruptor, promising to revolutionize learning, improve accountability, and cut costs.

Buttressed by our extensive experience in Government Services, Information Technology and Healthcare Services, Chessiecap has a combined depth of experience to understand and bring value to a rapidly changing Education industry that leverages technology at every opportunity.
