Brenda Anderson, founder and CEO of Jipe, was recently awarded the 30 Women to Watch award from Utah Business Magazine. This award recognizes women in Utah who are breaking barriers and making a significant impact in their respective fields. Anderson is recognized for her work in championing women in technology and providing opportunities for teens and young adults to jumpstart their careers through meaningful employment.
Anderson’s entrepreneurial inspiration sparked from a personal experience she had as a mother of teenage boys. When her son began looking for his first job, she recognized the lack of tools available to help him find an entry-level job near their home that would complement his busy schedule. She knew that she could create a solution to this issue that many teens and young adults face.
As the founder of Jipe, the first mobile job search app designed specifically for Gen Z, Brenda has revolutionized the way young people approach the job search process. Through Jipe, she has helped bridge the gap between employers and this crucial demographic, empowering young people to jumpstart their careers.
“If our youth can understand that their first job matters—regardless of what it is—and is the catalyst for their future success, I would consider that an accomplishment worth fighting for.”
