We are a private, invitation-only community for General Counsels of leading venture capital firms and venture-backed companies.

Our mission is to drive innovation, education and mentorship in the legal industry while also creating a strong peer group and community that supports each other for many years to come.

*Membership is by invitation or referral only and is limited to the most senior lawyer (i.e., General Counsel, Chief Legal Officer, Head of Legal, VP Legal, etc.) at each company or fund.
