Educas was established by Nadim Nsouli in July 2013 to acquire controlling stakes in premium private schools around the world. Educas has grown through acquisition, and partners with family owned businesses and management teams to achieve transformational growth. The group is now known as Inspired.

The business made its first acquisition in July 2013, taking a majority stake in Reddam House – a group of four premium, private South African schools. In order to broaden its international footprint, further acquisitions have been made in Africa, Europe, Australia and South America, as well as opening schools in South Africa and Australia. Today, Inspired comprises 27 schools and early learning centres across four continents, and educates over 16,000 students.

Fund I has now realised its stake generating a gross 3.0x return on its original investment.
