#2: Helping Billions of Low Skilled Workers Ft. Vize Co-Founders Bryce Watson and Julian Alvarez

In this special episode, Bryce Watson joins Julian Alvarez, your host, to talk about their entrepreneurial journey and their startup Vize (short for Incentivizing Good).

Vize’s mission is to help billions of low skilled workers find a job that they love and empower them with the skills they need to advance in their professional lives. Vize launched its pilot in Tijuana, Mexico, where the current goal is to improve working conditions for factory workers in Tijuana. These factory workers are often overworked, made to work in unsafe and unsanitary working conditions, don’t feel respected by their employers, and are sometimes made false promises prior to their employment that are never fulfilled once they start working. Vize aims to improve working conditions by allowing workers to anonymously write reviews about their work experiences so that the transparency of working conditions can help workers make better-informed decisions bout where to work and hold factories accountable for treating their workers better.

Bryce Watson is a Co-Founder and the CEO at Vize. He has a Masters in Economics and International Development from Texas A&M University and has over 5 years of experience working in international development.

Julian Alvarez is a Co-Founder and the CTO at Vize. He is the host of this podcast and will start working as a Software Engineer at Facebook in June 2021. Previously, Julian has interned as a Software Engineer at Facebook, LinkedIn, and Goldman Sachs.
