About Navitas

Over the last 20 years Navitas has almost exclusively acquired and invested in founder led organisations. Entrepreneurship is in our DNA, it’s what got us to where we are today and we believe it is the key to the future of education.

Navitas was an Australian education startup 20+ years ago and pioneered the “Pathway” business model, now a global multi billion dollar industry. In 2014, Forbes ranked Navitas one of the world’s most innovative growth companies and today Navitas is a $2b education company serving more than 80,000 students in 50 countries.

Our vision and values focus on quality above all else. Through our culture and 20+ years of experience we have crafted an approach that prioritises student outcomes and quality, whilst delivering growth that ultimately generates an economic surplus for our investors. We believe that quality and growth are not incongruent if prioritised correctly. Ultimately our vision is one of trust; with students, parents, teachers, partners, industries and governments. Our stated vision is “to be one of the most trusted learning organisations in the world”.
