    The problem:
    Students, colleges, and employers suffer from a growing skills gap because there is no effective intermediary to provide education that directly prepares students for digital-skill careers.

    Our solution:
    We partner with leading software companies to build college curriculum for emerging digital skill careers and deliver it to students through our network of community college and university partners. Students complete the courses on our online, active-learning environment.

    Our product:
    Our courses are offered on the Pathstream learning platform, which includes a killer virtually hosted labs feature that allows students to get hands-on with tools like Unity, Tableau, MySQL, Google Analytics, and others critical for digital skill jobs. This eliminates the frictions of learning new digital skills - students can jump into learning without wasting any time on downloading, installing, or configuring new tools or projects.

    Progress in our first 9 months:
    - Partnerships with Facebook, Unity, Tableau, Silicon Valley Bank, Salesforce, and others to be announced soon
    - Partnerships with 25+ community colleges that collectively reach over 1 million students
    - Viewed as a groundbreaking new model in higher ed - as featured in this TechCrunch article
