What is Riipen?
Riipen is a networking and project management platform between employers and higher education students.


What can Riipen do to help REVIVE businesses in the District Central?

  • Set up or accelerate projects (e.g., marketing, HR);
  • Conduct essential analyses for the revival of your economic activities
    (business environment, financial projections);
  • Provide new perspectives on real business challenges;
  • Give practice case experience to students, thus promoting their employability.


What is the exclusive offer available to SDC District Central members?
FREE access to a PREMIUM one-year user license for up to 10 projects per year (value of $2,500).

It sounds interesting, but my company doesn’t have a project idea yet… can we still take advantage of this offer?
YES! It is possible to respond to a project offered by an educational institution or take advantage of personalized support (for free!) from the Riipen team to help target a need or define a project to propose to students (examples >>).

Many projects are currently posted and ready to be matched with a business:
Université du Québec à Montréal
Université du Québec à Rimouski
Université du Québec en Outaouais
Concordia University
Bishop’s University
Vanier College
McGill University
