Right At School was in the fortunate position to choose between several outstanding private equity firms. We chose Prairie Capital because of their professionalism, values, and, quite honestly, their personalities. When you choose a partner, you want to know that you’ll work well together.

The past year has been a resounding success. The Prairie team adds value in all of our interactions and is involved in just the right manner. We’re on a tremendous growth trajectory, and it’s a great comfort to know Prairie has the financial and intellectual wherewithal to support us along the way.
