We are a newly incorporated blank check company incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, which we refer to throughout as our initial business combination. Our sponsor is an affiliate of Learn Capital and Commonwealth Asset Management (“CWAM”).
Founded in 2008, Learn Capital is a leading venture capital firm focusing exclusively on early-stage and mid-stage investments in the $5.4 trillion global education sector. By leveraging deep sector expertise, networks and sustained attention to emerging breakthroughs in technology-enabled education delivery, the firm has invested early in many of the sector’s largest and leading companies. In the last decade, Learn Capital has raised four funds totaling $800+ million in assets under management and invested in category-leading companies reaching learners globally, rendering the firm the leading global brand for technology-enabled education venture capital. Learn Capital was founded by Rob Hutter and Greg Mauro, a team who formerly managed an affiliate of Founders Fund, and Learn Capital possesses decades of founding, operating, and investing experience in the education, consumer, hard tech and enterprise technology sectors.
Commonwealth Asset Management Holdings LLC (“CWAM Platform”) is a Los Angeles-based asset management platform founded in June 2019 and led by Adam Fisher, our President, and the former Head of Global Macro and Real Estate at Soros Fund Management LLC and the former founder and Chief Investment Officer of Commonwealth Opportunity Capital, GP LLC. Commonwealth focuses its investment activities within three main categories: Global Macro (managed by its advisor CWAM), Real Estate (managed by its dedicated advisor Commonwealth Real Estate LP), and Opportunistic Growth.
While we may pursue an acquisition opportunity in any business industry or sector, we intend to focus our search for target businesses in the education, training and education technology (“EdTech”) industries. We intend to build an industry-leading sustainable education platform with attractive returns on invested capital and robust free cash flow generation. By consummating a business combination with a target business in the education, training and EdTech industries, we aim to offer public market investors near-term access and direct investment exposure to the long-term trends favorably impacting these sectors and to the related consolidation and value-creation opportunities. We intend to take a disciplined approach towards consummating an initial business combination with an emphasis on building significant shareholder value over the long-term. We also intend to look for target businesses with proven management teams who will foster an ownership culture with strong alignment of incentives.
