Compass

Our investment with Compass

Compass helps school communities simplify complexity with an all-in-one school management platform and technology ecosystem. Compass empowers 1800+ schools in Australia, Ireland and Canada with the tools they need to reduce time-consuming repetitive tasks. From student information management and roll marking to parent communication and cashless school canteens, every aspect of a school’s operation can be connected in Compass.

The Opportunity

Members of our team were already users of the platform when we connected with the founders of Compass Education to discuss a potential partnership to help the Company accelerate its growth and expand its reach. In partnering with the Compass Education team, our goal is to support the team’s strategic initiatives through additional insight, analysis and perspectives as we work to continue its expansion.

How We Help

Our investment in Compass has helped the SaaS company chase interstate and international growth, as well as facilitate strategic alliances to build a larger school network. Additionally, we have worked with the Company to assemble a high-quality management team, and implemented new systems and processes to support the business through this period of expansion.
