At Riipen, we focus on tackling the critical issue of underemployment by closing the gap between education and meaningful employment. We believe that education should lead to career opportunities that fully utilize one's skills and qualifications. By offering hands-on experiences, practical training, and industry connections, we ensure that learners are prepared and genuinely ready to thrive in their chosen fields.

The problem: Underemployment.

Underemployment is a persistent issue affecting countless individuals. Defined as working in jobs that do not match one's qualifications, underemployment can have long-lasting effects. According to data from the Burning Glass Institute and Strada Institute for the Future of Work (2024), a staggering 73% of workers who are underemployed at their first job remain underemployed ten years later. This issue disproportionately impacts minorities and women, perpetuating economic inequality.

The solution: Riipen's experiential learning.

Riipen was created to bridge the gap between education and meaningful employment. Our platform connects learners, educators, and employers, fostering a community where everyone benefits. Through real-world projects, learners gain hands-on experience, develop critical skills, and build the confidence to succeed.

Our tailored training programs and industry connections not only equip learners with the skills they need, but also empower them to secure jobs that match their qualifications. This approach is a powerful tool in the fight against underemployment, preparing individuals for upwardly mobile careers and inspiring them to reach their full potential.
