Pathfinder Publishing's career counselling platform Careers360 has raised an undisclosed amount of investment from five angel investors led by Ranjan Pai of Manipal Group, Satya Narayanan of Career Launcher, Mahesh Murthy of Pinstorm and two other undisclosed financial investors.

It also offers study material for CBSE school students (Class 9 - Class 12) and paid spoken English packages. Besides this, consumers can also purchase yearly subscriptions for Career360's monthly print magazine.
