Riipen: A Company–School Matchmaking Service
Since shortly after incorporating Soteria120, we've been closely engaged with Riipen: a platform that connects instructors with businesses to provide case studies for their students. During the COVID-19 crisis, Riipen expanded our access to students by providing additional "Virtual Internships." Since we're a virtual team anyway, this was a good fit.
Starting in the summer of 2020, we've since engaged with 15+ schools and more than 100 students who provided us with valuable inputs. The students provided inputs that included:
- Sales planning
- Marketing content - including video advertisements!
- Market research
- Content development
- Business analysis
- User experience and user interface studies
- Value chain automation
- Product development lifecycle optimization
- Data analytics
- HR Strategies & Policies
We intend to keep this engagement as part of our operation going forward! It is a privilege to engage with such diverse perspectives as well as give students the opportunity to share our journey and gain some useful experience.
This is work-integrated learning for remote workers in the digital workplace!
We recommend this platform for businesses at any stage of their development.
