CHOPLIN Ventures

Investing in education companies that encourage individuality rather than conformity.

Who ARE We?

A holding company led by two education entrepreneurs with years of experience in enrollment marketing, teacher recruiting, curriculum design, RegOps, grant writing & education finance. 🚀

📊 Our investments include:

  • Daycares & nurseries
  • Virtual education services
  • Primary & secondary schools
  • Adult training & upskilling programs
  • School support providers (marketing, staffing, grant-writing etc)

What sets us apart

Our past experience is that of operators, not investors. While we invest in growth, we also provide marketing, sales, bookkeeping, staffing, project management, and administrative services.

We prefer to keep the current leadership in place. We focus our energy on stabilizing rather than changing the strategy following your departure.

We buy with no intention of selling; we like schools that we can hold indefinitely.

We have no external investors. We are a pure holding company and, therefore, can have a long-term vision and a unique voice.

Our Promise

We are ready to put in the hard work to understand your legacy, absorb your culture, define the strategic path to continued success for your operation, and take over responsibility for the future.

Our Principles

We believe that small education companies are the lifeblood of every community. School leaders are retiring in droves and need a good transition plan. That’s what we’re here for.

How We Help

We help you unlock the value you created over a lifetime and transition your company into a safe, lasting capital structure accompanied by a diverse, 21st-century skillset.

Investment Criteria

🤔 What to expect?

iv. We respond to all your queries within 24 hours and will give you a Go/No Go decision within 14 days.

i. We are best able to help businesses with 650K-4M of annual revenue.

ii. If you have 8-25 employees, we can help you develop your people.

iii. It would be great if you are already consistently profitable so that we can grow your profitability further.

v. That would mean you probably have a strong reputation in your local or regional community.
