The Fourth Floor is dedicated to the following:
We are achieving these goals by:
Disrupting the system that undervalues women entrepreneurs & under utilizes General Counsels as strategic business partners.
Connecting curated groups of women Founders with experienced General Counsels, Industry Leaders, Investors and Strategic Partners, we are taking that first step toward disrupting the existing system and we are changing the conversation.
What does The Fourth Floor bring to all members?
Connections. Credibility. Access.
We're building a closed circuit ecosystem where founders, legal executives and industry leaders support one another and build lasting mutually beneficial relationships.
Is made up of over 350 :
Founders & Co-Founders of innovative, early stage to pre-series B startups
Experienced General Counsel from leading forward thinking companies
Industry Leaders in the C-Suite of Fortune 500 companies

"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!"

“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
