About

Andrea Guendelman is the founder and force behind BeVisible, the first career social media platform for Latinx.  Andrea founded BeVisible after her own experiences as a Harvard-trained corporate lawyer and an entrepreneur. As a Latina, she struggled to find her ambition and navigate the conflicting demands of her culture, as well as the stereotypes of U.S. culture. At the same time, she experienced the embrace of the Latina community and the power of networks.

Andrea grew up in Chile. The end of the Pinochet dictatorship awakened her generation of women to a world of career possibilities. When the country awoke, Chilean women faced the same opportunities and the same perils as women in the United States confronted a decade earlier. They faced traditional views on a woman’s role, families, spouses, and partners with their own demands and expectations, and discrimination and stereotyping.  The most daunting challenge for them was the question that comes with new freedom: what do I expect of myself?

Seeking to escape the net of expectations created by others, Andrea went to the United States to study at Harvard Law School. She then worked as a corporate lawyer in New York and Washington, D.C. and became a mother. She had achieved the dream of becoming a successful attorney. But she found it wasn’t necessarily her dream. Andrea wanted something more, and she wanted to give back to the community and to younger generations of aspiring Latinas.

Andrea took inspiration from her grandparents who were immigrants and entrepreneurs and founded her startup.

In a short timeframe, BeVisible.soy has built a community of thousands of active members who seek and provide mentorship, connect with career and educational opportunities, and read and provide cutting-edge content on career, cultural, and political issues facing the Latinx community. The core demographic for the platform is Latina millennials aged 25 to 35.

Andrea Guendelman and BeVisible have received significant media exposure. Andrea is considered a thought leader in the topics of Latinx career building and creating diverse workforces.

7/ We all hustled, for sure. We still do. But this is also a story about a lot of luck and help. And I fundamentally don’t believe the success of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people should be left to luck. There are so many that work just as hard and don’t make it.

1/ Most of my time is spent thinking about and investing in ways to systematically reduce barriers to opportunity. I recently spent some time thinking about my own upbringing and there are 3 major inflection points related to this that brought me some clarity.

"We’ll work to make the first two years of college, a certification program or an apprenticeship accessible and affordable, so millions more people get the skills they need to get a good job without drowning in debt." #Julian2020

Entrepreneurs: immediate success is one in one billion- but we kill ourselves believing in that myth. Method, patience, consistency, hard work. That’s true for 99 percent and if you are lucky like me- having the best teacher and being trained.
