Founding Story

Vivian Chen, founder of Rise

Hey there, I’m Vivian!  👋

I’ve worn many hats throughout my career, as a Brand Marketer, an Independent Consultant, a Strategist and now as an Entrepreneur and Founder.

Like many of you, I’ve had a non-linear career path. And my journey has been a series of connecting the dots –from beauty to tech to consulting–to show to the world what I can do as a Rising woman paving her own way

Despite progress made over the last generation, women are still underestimated in the workforce. I know what it’s like to switch industries, have my resume rejected by 100+ companies, and be the only woman in the room.

Today, women hold just 38% of manager-level positions (compared to men at 62%) and for every 100 men promoted to manager, only 85 women were promoted—and this gap was even larger for Black women (58 promoted) and Latinas (71 promoted).

That’s why I founded Rise, to help other women take charge of their careers and go further, faster, on our own terms.

The future is ours to create. Together, we can rise! 🦄💪
