Pathify Acquires Navengage

Pathify’s first acquisition extends improved student experiences to tens of thousands more students. 

JUNE 20, 2024, DENVER, CO – Pathify, the fastest-growing higher ed digital experience hub — proudly announces its acquisition of Navengage, an ed tech pioneer in student engagement mobile technology. The strategic acquisition marks a significant inflection point for both companies in revolutionizing the higher ed tech landscape.

As the most widely-used independent student portal and digital experience hub in the US, Pathify unifies all institutional technology, content, resources and communication. A fourth straight year of strong financial efficiency and impressive top-line revenue growth allowed Pathify to extend its reach in new and exciting ways. Navengage is the company’s first acquisition. 

“Pathify has always valued impact,” said Chase Williams, Pathify CEO and Co-Founder. “Acquiring Navengage enables Pathify to significantly influence the student engagement space and better support Anthology customers. We’re thrilled to welcome Navengage into the Pathify family.” 

Co-founded in 2020 by three Penn State University graduates, Navengage provides a streamlined, mobile-native app for accessing and promoting events, student organizations, and campus resources, while also fostering student connections and belonging. The company recently partnered with Anthology, serving as a comprehensive mobile experience for Anthology Engage. Navengage’s growing customer base includes institutions such as California Polytechnic State University, Penn State University, Roger Williams University, Texas Tech University, the University of Memphis, and the University of North Carolina Charlotte.

“Today’s announcement is a testament to our team’s exceptional work in building Navengage into the premier student engagement mobile app it is today,” said Andrew Strause, Navengage CEO and Co-Founder. “Pathify’s expertise and resources across higher education provide a strong foundation from which we can continue to impact the student experience.”

Navengage will remain fully operational, continuing to support its customers and product growth. Various Anthology integration improvements are planned for Pathify to ensure ongoing support for Navengage customers.
