HINGE Aids Investment Deal into Big Blue Marble Academy

HINGE is thrilled to announce a recent investment deal into Big Blue Marble Academy (BBMA) in which we acted as their exclusive financial advisor. 

Big Blue Marble Academy is an early childhood organization operating twenty-four community-based schools and six public elementary afterschool programs in South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and Texas.

Through HINGE Brokers, BBMA was matched with an investment partner, who invested an undisclosed amount in partnership with BBMA’s management to acquire and build upon the childcare group’s existing schools. HINGE previously supported BBMA with growth opportunities as well as financing partners for real estate investments.

HINGE client Nan Rikard founded Big Blue Marble Academy in 2012. The childcare group offers a unique, proprietary curriculum, a rich language immersion program, and hands-on, student-led philanthropic activities, all of which are core to the organization’s mission of promoting student readiness and success. Nan is thrilled to now have trusted partners to help bring these programs to even more students.

Congratulations to this wonderful client and friend on her new investment partnership and continued growth! Learn more about how HINGE Brokers can support your growing, buying or selling needs on our website or by contacting us at info@hingebrokers.com.
