Student Success Tools built for

online adult education.

We're a team of education and technology veterans passionate about making high-quality adult education more affordable.

Our co-founders, Lisa and Joe, have worked in online education for a combined 20 years. Joe most recently led education delivery and curriculum at Flatiron School, one of the largest online, outcomes focused adult learning institutions. Lisa has built education-focused software products at places including Google, Flatiron School and Meta. 

They grew frustrated by the tools available to manage the complexities of serving non-traditional students, so they set out to create a better solution.

Ribbon is now used by leading online, adult education institutions to improve student retention while reducing workload. 


We're proud to have the support and guidance from some of the most innovative and impact-focused operators and investors in education.
