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.

As I start fundraising, I realize that I have to deal with the pain of my limiting beliefs and dissect them one by one. Where do they come from, but most importantly what can I do to change them as fast as possible. I know this is my most important job right now.

This is my fav @DeepakChopra meditation. Living care free. I believe that if you master it, you are golden!

Think one of saddest things I see most often today is the trade off of true relationship building for the sake of “efficiency”:

You cannot have an expected “ROI” on human relationships.

There is no payback period to measure.

Human to human, true engagement is all we have. 👍
