K12 Techno Services was incorporated in March 2010 by M. Venkatanarayana and his son M.S.C. Srikanth to provide education services to state board schools under Sri Gowtham Academy of General and Technical Education. In 2016, the promoters exited the company, and it was acquired by Sequoia Capital and Navneet Learning.

Under the new management, the company provides management services to ICSE and CBSE curriculum schools from kindergarten to X-XII, based in large metros like Bengaluru and Mumbai under the ‘Orchid, The International School’ brand.

The company provides full stack education, content, and technology services to over 900 educational institutions across India through a combination of its own curriculum and a technology platform.

K12 Techno has helped schools bridge the gap between students and accessible, holistic education by leveraging technology and process orientation. The company provides academic support, upgraded teaching methodologies, and management services to ensure high-quality outcomes.

The convergence of values and aspirations between Kedaara and K12 Techno makes it a promising partnership. The investment will enable K12 Techno to expand its reach and upgrade its tech stack to enhance learning models and outcomes.

The company’s curriculum schools, Orchid, The International School, have a strong presence in large metros like Bengaluru and Mumbai. K12 Techno’s professional management team has helped the company achieve steady revenue growth and a high valuation. The company has also attracted investments from existing investor Navneet and Sequoia, as well as Sofina and Unacademy.

In addition to its investment in K12 Techno Services, Kedaara Capital has made several other strategic investments in the education sector, such as education-focused lender Avanse Financial Services.
