Virtual Job Shadow, a college and career readiness platform, has merged with Nepris, a college and career readiness live industry connections platform, to form a new company, Pathful Inc. The combined firm is backed by growth equity firm, PSG.

The combined firm will provide a service that offers educators a variety of resources to help students achieve success in their future careers. Pathful intends to change the way people think about college and career readiness while offering the ability to connect industry professionals with the classroom.

“PSG looks to partner with founders and CEOs that we believe are motivated to accelerate growth and product adoption within large markets,” said Tom Reardon, managing director at PSG. “We are excited to have found an opportunity to work with Jennie Kristoffersen (Pathful CEO), who has shown herself as an innovator within EdTech, to bring together two industry-leading products and create a single platform for college and career readiness.”
