"I have been involved with startups for many years as an advisor, entrepreneur and investor. I joined The Fourth Floor as it seemed to have strong female founders and a fantastic mission to advocate for more women board seats. Because of this community I met the founder of a AI/ML/Data Science startup. I signed on as a board member very quickly and happily.”
-Cathy Schwallie Farmer Advisor, Investor & Board Member
"The Fourth Floor is one of the most impactful communities I've joined since starting a business. Not only have I connected with other founders who've become accountability partners and collaborators, but potential board members, advisors and investors have been reaching out to me directly after The Fourth Floor events, newsletters and networking events. Everytime I make time to participate, I make a new connection." - Kristen Carbone, Founder & CEO of Brilliantly
