A French leading provider of services to individuals focusing on private tutoring and home cleaning

Domia is a French leading player in the service to individuals sector focusing on private tutoring and home cleaning through two separate brands:

Acadomia is the leading player in the primary, secondary, higher-education and test-prep tutoring markets (at-home, centres and online). It operates a network of 100 agencies and 20,000 tutors dedicated to help approximately 90,000 students per year meet their academic goals and enhance their educational life. Acadomia is recognised for its unrivalled brand awareness, its customer-satisfaction ratings and the proven academic success of its students.

Shiva is one of the leading and the fastest-growing actors in the home cleaning market. Through its network of 165 franchised agencies, Shiva helps its 45,000-strong client-base to improve their quality of life by taking care of their house cleaning on a regular basis thanks to a unique network of 8,000 selected, trained and highly experienced maids. Shiva is contributing to transform the highly fragmented home cleaning market by delivering a high-quality hassle-free interior experience.

IK Partners acquired Domia from Metric Capital in May 2018.
