ConnecPath has been recognized as one of the top 10 Edtech Startups of 2017 by Education Technology Insights magazine. The acknowledgment was given in the December edition of the publication where ConnecPath founder, Leo Sanada, described how the app has been revolutionizing the college application process.
“Our vision is to increase the college and career readiness of young students on a massive scale to steer them towards a better career path,” Sanada said.
The founding team of ConnecPath includes Sanada. a tech-savvy CEO with an education background, and Pradeep Reddy, a CTO with a strong tech background.
Sanada met with Reddy in Silicon Valley in July 2017 and quickly assimilated the tech genius/expert into ConnecPath.
“We saw a great fit as a founding team,” Sanada said.
The origins of ConnecPath go back to where Sanada was doing an internship at Skyline High School in Ann Arbor while he was completing his MBA at the University of Michigan. During his time at the high school Sanada recognized a need in the college counseling process and set out to solve it with a AI-power chat-bot app that acts as a virtual career counselor.
Reddy has been working in the software development industry for over 10 years. He has a passion for AI and a background as a VR researcher and data scientist and his skills and talent fit into the ConnecPath vision.
Thanks to the help of StartupHouse Foundry Program, an incubator program based in San Francisco, the company incorporated and fast-tracked their growth.
