Established in 1995, Pathway Communications grew from a startup Internet Service Provider to one of Canada's largest privately-owned Internet service, network integration and e-commerce companies with over 120 employees and three city locations within five years. Pathway’s Internet business was sold to Axxent Inc. in July 1999 until Pathway bought it back in June 2001.
Pathway was the first Canadian company to offer a unified portfolio of Internet, network integration and e-commerce services from a single source under one customer bill. It has the distinction of being showcased as a success story by Sun Microsystems and was the first ISP in the world to acquire ISO 9002 certification. The Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario features and uses Pathway as a case study in successful entrepreneurship as part of its MBA curriculum. – less–ZoomInfo
