Kaizen Management Advisors Pvt. Ltd. is also looking to exit pre-school chain, Your Kids R Our Kids India Education Pvt. Ltd through a "strategic deal".

Kaizen Management Advisors Pvt Ltd, a private equity firm that focuses on the education sector, has invested in Hyderabad-based professional skills training firm INSOFE Education Pvt. Ltd., which runs International School of Engineering.

According to Dakshinamurthy V. Kolluru , Founder, INSOFE, the funds will be used to expand research activity, hire faculty members and grow operations both in the country and overseas.
