THE FOURTH FLOOR: A NEXT LEVEL COMMUNITY

image18
Welcome to

the fourth floor

Where we disrupt the system that undervalues women Founders, underutilizes General Counsel, and underrepresents women as Industry Leaders

WE ARE AN ECOSYSTEM FOR WOMEN CHANGE MAKERS

Dedicated to wealth creation for WOMEN by WOMEN and:

  • Promoting women entrepreneurs
  • Increasing investment dollars going to women entrepreneurs
  • Placing women on the advisory boards of early stage companies
  • Introducing angel investment opportunities


Why be a part of our community?

As a Founder:

  • You will meet general counsel and industry leaders from major companies that are eager to help you build and scale your company.

As a General Counsel or Industry Leader:

  • You will meet startup founders building innovative companies and will have the chance to build mutually beneficial relationships i.e. mentorship and advisory board seats.


What does everyone get?    Connections. Credibility. Access. 

Our Community

Consists of over 450:

Founders & Co-Founders of innovative, early stage to pre-series B startups

Experienced General Counsel from forward thinking companies

Industry Leaders in the C-Suite of Fortune 500 companies

"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

WHY GENERAL COUNSEL are SO VALUABLE TO the STARTUP ECOSYSTEM

Their role goes far beyond legal...they're strategic business partners

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.

Testimonials

"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
