Ascend Ventures into Education Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

This note describes the selection by Ascend Ventures to invest its money into a company that falls outside of their investment strategy. Ascend Ventures is a comparatively youthful private equity firm that has targeted technology businesses that are managed by women or minorities.

The company,Platform Learning, under its consideration, runs as a for profit education marketplace, providing supplemental education services to children in failing public schools. Because Platform Learning isn't a technology company, Ascend's investment managers concerned about how their limited partners might react to this investment and are worried about their ability to add value in this marketplace.
