HubSpot Educators, Bring Customers Into Your Classroom

Students want to graduate ready to work, but don't always have the opportunity to apply what they learn. Let HubSpot's Education Partner Program help you immerse your students in real business projects that will equip them with skills needed for success.

How it works


Give Students a Challenge

Solving business challenges allows students to gain insight into their career growth. We allow you to bring businesses into the fold of your classroom with the structure your students need to succeed.



Engage Across the Globe

Reach and engage with businesses in new fields and across borders. Students are typically the first to find trends and new technologies, and companies are hungry for their perspective. 


Enhance Employability

Working with students in real-time lets business see their skills in action.

These businesses can recruit from your classroom, straight into their office.


Students Skill-Up

Connect emerging talent with businesses and help close the skills gap between higher education and industry.

    How do you start?

    Reach out to so that we can discuss whether you'd be a good match for this program. Afterwards, we will send you an invite to your portal, which will allow you to create a course page for free. This course will outline what you'd like your students to work on during the academic term.

    We'll then work on matching you with someone in HubSpot's client or Solutions Partner base. 

    You can use Riipen's project management software to establish project milestones, communicate with the business, establish expectations, and have student submit deliverables to the business. 

    Give feedback, watch your students grow, and post another course to engage again with the businesses in your classroom.
