Hello Fourth Floories!

TODAY is THE DAY! It's finally here! Wherever you may fall on the political spectrum, we hope you will go out, or mail in, to make your voice count. VOTE! Let's make those suffragettes proud!

Speaking of proud, we are so excited for the upcoming BETA launch of our new platform. If you were invited to participate in our BETA and have not yet signed up for Group 2, you are still able to do so here. Everyone else, please stay tuned for more news about the launch in January and how you can sign up.

We have a special ASK. We are looking for someone to help us with PR to support the launch. If you have experience and would like to assist us, please email Kat.

Finally, calling all FOUNDERS who are offering services, products, or incentives to help people get through this awful pandemic. We would like to feature you on our website and across our social media. Please let us know here if you would like to be included and how you are helping during this time.
 
UPCOMING EVENTS

Friday, November 6, at 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST

Please join us and our amazing panelists as they discuss "The In-House Legal Function" at established companies. We're sure there will be some great tips and tricks offered.

This will be the last of our GC Roundtables for now. We put these together with the help of our GC Steering committee and they have been a phenomenal success. Thank you all for your assistance and generosity. Stay tuned for future GC Roundtable opportunities.

TAKE 4 HAPPY HOUR

Thursday, November 5th from 5:00-6:00 pm EST


Wow! What a turn out! It was so great to get to know so many of you at last week’s Happy Hour. The best outcome of that night was that a formal relationship materialized because of a connection made by two attendees. We love to hear that!

This week’s Happy Hour is filling up fast.  Please sign up below.

Bring your GIVES and GETS so we can collectively brainstorm solutions and share resources. Be ready to write them into the chat so we can distribute them afterwards to keep each other top of mind.

***You must be an accepted member to participate.

Kaitlin Christine, Founder & CEO of Gabbi
 
ABOUT: Kaitlin Christine is a fighter and fierce advocate. After losing her mom to breast cancer due to malpractice, she exhibited similar symptoms and had to fight to get proper care and was diagnosed with breast cancer at only age 24.

My GET: 
I am most interested in growing relationships with investors, key decision makers at health insurance companies, and potential hires in engineering, marketing, and operations. I also have a secret list of female celebrities who focus on women's health and/or have been impacted by cancer--if you know one, I would LOVE an introduction.
FUN FACT: I was training for the Salt Lake Olympics as a Ski Racer before college.

Thank you for your support:
MORE FROM OUR FRIENDS
From the NYC Mayor’s Office of the CTO – 
Launching a second cohort of the NYC[x] Innovation Fellows program in partnership with US Digital Response. 
It will run for 10 weeks on the projects below:  
1. Minority- & Women-Owned Business Data Directory: Fostering critical business opportunities for minority and women-owned business enterprises (M/WBEs) by creating a public-facing directory for government agencies and outside entities looking for potential vendors and partners.
2. Payment Sites Optimization Project: Identifying key intervention points in NYC’s payment portals to improve New Yorkers’ experience interacting with the site to make payments, and thus reduce the need for in-person transactions.
3. Older Adults Virtual Programming and Service Finder: Designing and building a public-facing service finder tool to help older New Yorkers explore, find, and access providers and remote services designed to help reduce isolation and facilitate social connection.
This is a great opportunity to work with NYC government agencies and build tech products that bring immediate value to the City (also, we’ve heard it’s fun!).
