Riipen is a cloud-based software platform designed to facilitate the connection between post-secondary schools, students and companies. Our core offering is a work-integrated experiential learning platform that enables skills validation of students while still in university/college. In simple terms, it’s like a shot term, online version of co-op: except instead of full work terms students are working on customizable projects and challenges with companies, students demonstrate skills, gain career clarity, and build employer networks.

We are active on over 130 campuses across North America, enabling 25,000 students to access real-world experiences with companies over the past two years, with 10,000+ companies in our ecosystem (including leading tech companies like Microsoft, IBM, Google, although the majority of companies working with us are SMEs and startups).
