Jipe’s founder, Brenda Anderson, is one of the less than 5 percent of female Utah CEOs. She lives her life unafraid to uncover and execute ideas that change the way we think—while bringing creative ease to the way we live our lives in a world centered on technology. As a strong, ambitious, single mom of two teenage boys, she saw a need for an app that made searching for an entry-level job easy and familiar, especially for the Gen Z population. Over the course of a year, after surviving brain surgery, Brenda worked toward her goal of building Jipe during every spare hour. Today she is proudly showcasing Jipe to both job seekers and businesses. The reviews are in: Jipe is needed and relevant, and it is creating a stir in the industry.
This event is made possible with the support of the Ronald E. McNair Posbaccalaureate Achievement Program at Westminster College, Jipe Jobs, Utah Department of Heritage and Arts, and Utah Humanities.
