If your company helps globalize education, offers technology to improve how students learn and instructors teach, or uses analytics to improve education services at colleges and universities — Sterling Partners’ Principal Shoshana Vernick may be looking for you.
Vernick is one half of the new management team overseeing the Chicago-based private-equity firm’s new $200 million Education Opportunity Fund.
The fund — the firm’s first with a sector focus — will likely invest in about 10 to 12 “industry-defining” growth-stage companies in the U.S. that serve colleges and universities.
Shoshana Vernick, a female principal at Chicago based private equity firm Sterling Partners, will lead the firm's new $200 million education fund.
“Right now, we are on the hunt,” Vernick said in an
interview with Bizwomen. “My schedule is full of meetings and interactions to try to find a combination of ideas, talent and companies.”
