We are an independent, 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 startup and legal industry while also creating a strong peer group and community whose members support each other throughout their careers.

*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.
