Client Testimonials



“LoEstro were very professional with the right attitude and energy, throughout the engagement with us. Their experience in the field of education spoke volumes and they were able to come up with very interesting, innovative, and relevant solutions in multiple areas that was backed with extensive research. The regular meetings and follow-ups helped our school achieve our goals”

Preethaa Ganesh

Rakesh and his team have played a critical role in People Combine’s journey for over a decade. In various capacities the team has helped us develop business plan, garner resources – talent and capital and deliver the plan. On the fundraise side they led the process of raising capital from Ascent, giving then an exit through a leveraged buyout and eventually managing the Nord Anglia deal. Can vouch for the team’s professionalism, client centricity and expertise. Looking forward to a continued professional engagement with LoEstro
