Updated over a week ago

Riipen attracts educational institutions from all over the world to post experiences to its open marketplace so that companies can browse and match them to their projects at any time. Using the open marketplace is the best tool to get started finding the right experiences for your project. Once you find an experience you’re interested in, submit a match request.

  • Experiences and learners available for your project today.

  • Experiences with varying class sizes, objectives, and study categories.

  • Learners from top institutions eager to apply specialized knowledge.


Experiences on demand

The open experience marketplace will always be full of hundreds of experiences waiting to be matched with projects like yours. Experiences come in various durations, ranging from quick 1-2 week experiences suitable for small company projects to semester-long or capstone projects completed over several months.

You'll easily re-apply the exact same search criteria with a click of a button when you revisit the open marketplace, and we'll send you new experiences that meet those criteria straight to your inbox as they become available.

Match requests

Once you have found the right experience, or an educator has found your project and believes it is a great fit for their experience, you will be able to utilize the match request tools and workflows to:

  • Have a private conversation with the educator where you can discuss details, book meetings, and have video conference calls using the message center.

  • Propose and negotiate changes to the project scope and details and easily see what has been proposed vs the original project description

  • Use double-sided acceptance for match requests, ensuring mutual satisfaction with all details before progressing further.
