Our Story

Since day one, we’ve been passionate about helping people reach their development, employment, well-being and self-sufficiency goals.
  • 2012
    Started working on a multilingual way-finding application at Colorado State University to help international students navigate the campus. Unfortunately, soon after testing of the application commenced, Google announced their efforts to do the same thing.
  • 2013
    Learned that the career advisors at Colorado State University School of Business Career Center were struggling to meet the demand from thousands of students for career readiness services. Without killing the budget, the school needed a way to increase counselor capacity. Several months later, TuaPath delivered v1.0. The solution fully integrated the abundance of career resources into easy to access pathways of career learning objectives students could view and complete on their own, 24/7.

    The software capabilities were expanded to include both a coaching portal where counselors could access a student's profile to assist them in setting-up career pathways and a faculty portal for those visionary career centers that wanted to scale career learning objectives to faculty to integrate into the curriculum.

    Introduced TuaPath at National Association of Colleges & Employers.
  • 2015
    Word of the success at Colorado State University School of Business spread quickly with TuaPath deployed in a number of career centers at both large and small universities. As our team grew, so did the TuaPath team.
  • 2015
    While working with Colorado State University, TuaPath met the Larimer County Works Program Manager. She envisioned that TuaPath could offer a more effective means of delivering services to Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) program participants, and more importantly, had the potential to change the relationship with participants from one of directive case management to mentoring coach.
  • 2016
    Over the past year we spent hundreds of hours learning about the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, it's intake process and the services coaches provide participants, working specifically with the Larimer Country Works Program Manager and her team. Together, we launched TuaPath v2.0, which allowed program participants to take the initiative in creating online, a personalized roadmap of goals and action steps to meet their expectations for self-sufficiency, with guidance from their coach.

    TuaPath continues to onboard large universities across the country.
  • 2017
    We discovered that case managers were spending up to 50% of their time managing the paper-based work participation requirements, and it was taxing even the most organized coaches. Participants were equally stressed with the paper-based system on top of the day to day challenges of living in poverty. Automating this system bought great returns and its success in adoption, reducing non-compliance rates and continuing to save time has exceeded everyone's expectations.
  • 2017
    As we are continually learning and committed to providing a platform that helps facilitate coaching, we teamed up with clinical psychologist, Dr. Dick Guare, co-author of "Smart but Scattered – And Stalled", to integrate assessments that help coaches get to know participants and discover obstacles that can hinder goal attainment.
  • 2018
    Completed an innovative pilot project with Mercy College that proved, with support from leadership and key stakeholders, collectively you could build a program that dramatically increased the number of student touchpoints without adding staff. The pilot concluded in the spring and the results were excellent.
  • 2018
    The data is in! Since implementing TuaPath, Larimer County Works Program is realizing unprecedented results - 98% adoption rate of the online platform, 50% reduction in non-compliance and meeting no-shows, 2-3x increase in touch points, 87% on time submission rate, 35% time saved per case.
  • 2019
    The Office of Family Assistance (OFA) recognizes TuaPath as an innovative technology initiative to improve employment outcomes in its Emerging Practice Series Brief “Colorado: Web-based Technology for Coaching TANF Participants.”
