Employees: The company has a pool of close to 60 Associates (employed as 1099s), all with exceptional educational knowledge and expertise. Additionally, Chalk is supported by a top-notch advisory council, technical team, graphics design team, client services coordinator, and data and media services coordinator. Competition: Chalk has found a favorable niche between the big box consultancies firms (Solution Tree, K12 Education, EL learning, Learning Forward, etc.) and small regional players. The large organizations are too general; they conduct motivational sessions and overviews but do not give schools the tactical guidance that they need with the proven strategies that realize measurable results. The smaller organizations do not have Chalk’s proprietary materials and tools, and are not considered relevant competition. Transition Support: The owner is willing to fully assist the buyer in having a smooth transition period, transferring the proprietary information and tools to the new owner, potentially helping with the sale process, or even offering advisory assistance after the transition period has ended. The owner is committed to helping the business reach the next level as it scales and grows. Reason for Selling: The owner is ready to retire and see the company expand to the next level of growth in the hands of the right buyer after it has built highly successful, scalable, and client vetted products and services. Growth: Large $240Bn global Learning and Developing market that is growing rapidly in many of its verticals, with a very big total addressable market for the company as every school district in the USA can be targeted by their offerings. Schools are under pressure to improve the learning process, online training is on the move and the company is prepared to take full advantage of these trends, as it has created the fundamentals linked to building high-performance systems, all of which can be successfully delivered in blended formats, on-site and virtual by Chalk highly versatile, proven, and standardized approach.
