Riipen Projects & Marketplace
Project-based learning is at the heart of who we are and what we do. Born as a student project in 2013 at the University of Victoria, BC, Canada, Riipen was built on the idea that we can better society while simultaneously helping bridge the graduate skills gap by bringing our brightest minds together to learn, create, and innovate.
Riipen’s project and assignment libraries, paired with our open marketplace and templates, allow Riipen industry partners and educators to easily customize, manage, and share their industry-relevant assignments and projects with one another.
Students, on the other hand, can access the marketplace and connect with companies privately through in-class projects or publically through job postings, skill challenges, hack-a-tons, and case competitions.
Host, manage and complete projects ranging from 1 to 100 hours of effort, with hundreds of student incentives including job opportunities, cash, networking, mentorship, and much more.
