Kaizen Management invests Rs 20 cr in a pre-school company

Kaizen Management Advisors Private Limited, an education focussed Private Equity fund has invested Rs 20 crore in Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids (India) Private Limited (YKROK).
YKROK is a pre-school providing child care services also. It has more than 1,500 kids across 15 self-managed centers across India. These centers are in partnership with 50 corporates. All the centers are either near corporate campuses or on campuses of corporate sponsored child care programs. “Corporates are increasingly using day care services as one of the employee productivity and retention tools. The trend in India is very similar to what happened in the US in mid 80s. Tie up with corporate customers ensures bulk enrolments and a sticky customer base. The business model has reasonable pricing power and high entry barriers. With attractive center economics, we believe the YKROK has the potential to become a leader in this white space in India” said Sandeep Aneja, Founder and MD, Kaizen Management Advisors.

The financing will be used to support YKROK’s pan-India growth plans. YKROK has identified numerous locations across several cities in India over the next five years.

This transaction marks Kaizen’s second investment in India. First being in Universal Training Solutions, at an undisclosed amount, which delivers curriculum development, student acquisition, student life cycle management and personalized learning services through an online learning and student management platform.

UTS has grown two-fold since last year and is fast becoming the leading online services company in India.
