"We’re creating a space where back room dealings are made, like the ones men have always had, but we’re doing it the way women would.”
- Breen Sullivan, Founder
Startup lawyers discuss pet peeves, best practices, stories, and offer insights into the process of hiring, firing, and working with outside counsel. Learn how you can grow your business with startups.
Learn from the experts in placing candidates on corporate boards, as well as a fascinating group of panelists, including entrepreneurs turned board members. Leave with actionable steps to achieve your goal of finding a board opportunity or ideal board candidate.
Many startups fail due to issues legal in nature but an experienced general counsel can offer so much more. They follow business, legal, HR, and finance trends and are trained to understand best practices, resolve conflicts, and issue spot with an aim towards solutions. They have a deep, inside knowledge of their industry and are expert strategists which makes them influential with leadership and boards as well as lend credibility to startups struggling for legitimacy.
Founders: Please send us your pitch deck to firstname.lastname@example.org . We will review and may reach out to you to set up a phone interview.
Watch our Founder Breen Sullivan and Co-Founder Sarah Feingold introduce us at our Soft Launch last May.
"I am so impressed with the women I met at the Fourth Floor soft launch. The founders all had amazing stories and vision, the speakers were thoughtful and provocative, and I left thinking not only was this about time, but that everyone in the room was a rock star."
- Louise Firestone, SVP and General Counsel of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc.
"Having been in the legal industry for almost two decades, I am often challenged and frustrated by the lack of mentors with whom I have shared experiences and backgrounds. I am excited about The Fourth Floor and the possibility of connecting with an incredible community of women leaders who are committed and interested in shaping our present and future with inclusive compassion, intellectual curiosity, and authenticity. I can't wait to see what's next!"
- Jennifer Chung, GC, AccuWeather
“I love the values behind the Fourth Floor -- that women can and should support one another and when we do, we will all win. As an entrepreneur, I have benefited from the support of amazing female General Counsels over the years who have been true business partners. This talented group is often an untapped resource and I'm thrilled that the Fourth Floor is here to change that dynamic.”
- Dana Mauriello, MBA, serial entrepreneur and founder
