legal advocates for founders
helping cut the BS out of VC

Illustration for text: If you’re looking for template-free legal protection, you’re in the right place.

Women founders secure about 2% of venture capital investment, annually. Women of color, less than 1%. This is despite the fact that startups with a female founder on the team deliver significantly higher returns for investors than all-male teams (up to 60% higher according to some studies)

When women founders do secure funding, they raise significantly less, are less likely to raise subsequent rounds, and retain less equity in their companies.

We believe that legal counsel can help. We are a nationwide network of startup attorneys committed to supporting underrepresented founders. We believe you deserve more than templates. We're here to give you clear answers to your legal questions. We're here to help you succeed.
