What is Riipen?
Riipen is a technology platform that enables organizations of all sizes to engage with top students and recent graduates from colleges and universities across North America to complete work projects.

Riipen’s mission is at the core of everything they do — empowering emerging talent to gain relevant skills and find the jobs they love.

How do you want to engage?

In-Class Projects
Riipen In-Class Projects are faculty-supervised assignments that students are completing for course credit.

Riipen works with the educators at participating institutions to adapt their assignments and make them relevant for industry participation. Projects in this category typically span 5-20 weeks in duration and follow the semester timeline. Students in small groups or an entire class complete the projects through remote and periodic in-person collaboration.

Skills Challenges
Riipen Skills Challenges are engagements that highlight role specific challenges and the skills required to be successful in your company. They are typically tied to entry-level roles across your organization.

Challenges are a great way to build awareness around the career paths your company offers and provides an opportunity for emerging talent to build their skills and demonstrate their potential for future opportunities.

Riipen Competitions are more formal events that are either entirely online or structured around an on-campus event (i.e. Case Competition, Hackathon etc.).

Riipen’s software enables organizations to efficiently manage competitions, provide students with a branded record of participation for their portfolio, and allow competition judges to validate skills of each participant.
