About the business: Vocational Research Institute is a software-as-a-service company that specializes in career development and whose main product, CareerScope, is an interest and aptitude assessment that’s been taken more than 1 million times. The company, led by CEO Jamie McIntyre, employs 10 people, but serves 1,000-plus customers, which are largely government agencies and companies that specialize in workforce development, particularly for veterans, incarcerated individuals and students. How it started: The company was founded in Philadelphia in 1963 under the umbrella of Jewish Employment & Vocational Services, which created a paper-based career assessment. As the years went on, the Vocational Research Institute transitioned to a bulky, computer-like machine called Apticom that salespeople would lug all around the country.
