Hi, we’re Rise

We use high-skilled, work-from-anywhere roles to accelerate a woman’s career. By working on a wider range of opportunities in a shorter amount of time, women can rise up faster. Companies seeking to fill internal skills gaps, staff part-time leadership roles, or complete time-sensitive projects can use the platform as a new avenue for recruitment.

Founding Story

Vivian Chen, founder of Rise

Hey there, I’m Vivian!  👋

My first job out of college was a job every girl wanted. I worked at L’Oréal, working on brands like Lancôme, Kiehl’s, and Garnier. I launched new products to the market and my bathroom cabinet looked like Sephora.

But I grew antsy at the traditional 9-to-5 and left to do something by myself. Like many first-time entrepreneurs, my first business failed. So I picked up independent consulting by chance and in a matter of months, I scored an incredible list of clients from category-creating startups to leading Fortune 500 companies.

The aha moment came when one year into going independent, I was offered a job that was 5 levels above where I was a year ago. I realized that I had accidentally stumbled upon a way to leapfrog my career.

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

If I can do it, so can you. 🦄💪
