About Company

Pathstream was borne out of the observation that nearly all jobs increasingly require digital skills, specifically “platform-centric” skills on software platforms such as Adobe, Unity, Autodesk, Facebook Ads, etc. However, these high power, in-demand software platforms are hard to learn through the passive, video-based instructional approach of most online learning.
