Burg is a financial advisory firm serving owners, operators and investors in the global language industry.

  • We are on a mission to increase biodiversity with education.

    Population growth and rising consumption are the primary drivers of biodiversity loss and climate change. When levels of education rise (in particular for girls and young women) fertility typically falls.

    Language education is the first step to access and understand existing knowledge.

    At Burg we enable the global language ecosystem to thrive by identifying best practices and allowing as many participants as possible to succeed.

    With over 11,000 language company records we maintain the world's largest market intelligence platform. Our insights get participants funded and accelerate sustainable, profitable growth.
