Education Growth Advisors Becomes Tyton Partners

BOSTON and STAMFORD, Conn., – Education Growth Advisors announced today that it has become Tyton Partners, an evolved advisory firm that provides investment banking and strategy consulting services to the global knowledge sector. Under the new name, the firm will continue to offer in-depth market perspective and insight that helps drive growth and innovation in the education, media, and information markets.

“The name change from Education Growth Advisors to Tyton Partners is representative of the evolution of our firm and the momentum and the growth we’ve seen in recent years,” said Christopher Curran, Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “At a time of tremendous growth and opportunity in the market, Tyton Partners is positioned to help organizations navigate the complexities of the global knowledge sector and pursue solutions that have lasting impact.”

Curran said, “Our dual-practice platform means we can offer sound investment and growth strategies under one roof – with investment banking services rooted in strategy development and operating experience, and strategy consulting services built on a foundation of transactional experience and data-based market insight.”

Anchored in the tenets of insight, connectivity, and tenacity, Tyton Partners offers a spectrum of services from mergers and acquisitions and capital markets access, to strategy development across the preK–12, postsecondary, corporate training, and lifelong learning sectors. The firm’s principals have led more than $4 billion in transactions and advised a diverse array of organizations, from emergent and established, private and publicly traded companies, to non-profit organizations, institutions, and foundations, to private equity and venture capital firms and other investors.

“The global knowledge sector thrives on connections; connecting people, businesses, and ideas is what drives innovation in this space,” said Adam Newman, Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “We serve as a link within and between the many markets and stakeholders we serve – from making connections between companies and capital, to deciphering market changes and market trends, to prioritizing business practices over business theories for our clients.”

Tyton Partners will continue to serve as a source for accurate, predictive analysis, and proprietary research and commentary on a wide range of trends and dynamics that influence the sector. The firm also hosts a distinctive annual, two-day Summit that brings together a curated mix of K-12 and postsecondary institutional leaders, entrepreneurs and established company executives, investors and foundations, and other industry influencers to explore issues around growth and investment in the global knowledge sector. This year’s Summit will be held in June at the New York Times Center in New York City and is organized around the theme “How Innovation Scales.” The Summit will explore issues of scale from multiple perspectives (e.g. companies, institutions, markets, and international) to help entrepreneurs, institution and industry leaders, and investors explore the truths and lessons learned about the sector’s efforts to scale innovation.

“The intricacies and nuances of the education, media, and information markets are complex and constantly evolving. Our experience in the sector enables us to offer not just insight, but foresight, and helps us ‘see around the corners’ to help clients make smarter decisions,” said Newman.

The name change will not have any leadership or staff implications. Tyton Partners has offices in Boston and Stamford (CT).
