The Accelerator Tailored To You And Your Business Needs

Our small size of 15 teams makes us unique and allows us to systematically de-risk your business by providing a program customized to your specific business. Think of us as an extension of your team from the minute you accept our offer to your IPO.  Hear directly from Pear Accelerator Founders:

How We Help

Fundraising & Demo Day

82% of teams in the past three  Accelerator cohorts raised a Seed after Demo Day at an average round size of $2.5M
  • We offer you a $150K SAFE for 5% plus an optional $100K SAFE at $10M cap, to participate in the Accelerator.

  • Our Demo Day is attended by hundreds of top investors in Silicon Valley and our Accelerator teams have raised from Accel, NEA, Forerunner, Greylock, Kleiner Perkins, and more. Because of the small batch size, you’ll have the full attention of more than 700 hundred top investors in Silicon Valley.

  • We are also an experienced venture firm and will support your fundraising process to IPO through our data driven approach and personal introductions to the right VC for you. You’ll also get access to our exclusive fundraising software to generate a custom investor list and help you manage the process.

Product & Growth

Our partners have founded 8 startups and partnered early with portfolio companies valued at over $80 Billion
  • You’ll get day to day attention and hands-on mentorship from our 6 partners who are experienced entrepreneurs.

  • We will match you with best-in class operator mentors (eg. Bob Tinker, Armando Mann) who will meet with you regularly and provide tailored input and guidance based on your needs.

  • Since we’re working with a small number of teams, we’ll be able to roll up our sleeves and help you expedite your journey to product market fit.

Recruiting

Our partner Pedram Keynai built Uber's engineering team from 20 to 250, and he coaches Accelerator teams on how to run an effective recruiting process
  • We’ll help source, evaluate, and close candidates at all levels, because getting the right employee is essential to your business.

  • You’ll have access to our entire network, including our communities of top tier engineers.

  • Our partners are available 24/7 to coach you on the process and step in when you need us.

Community

We host 100+ events per year with accomplished guest experts, such as Omid Kordestani,  Jeff Housenbold,  Stanley Tang,  and many more.
  • As an Accelerator team, you’ll join a tight-knit, exclusive and supportive community of founders and operators.

  • Our network is deep and we share it widely with our portfolio founders.

  • Free office space in Menlo Park and SF's South Park (when we return to using physical offices) and many special discounts for software and other tools.

"Starting a company is an incredibly scary and vulnerable moment in one’s life and those first few weeks and months are incredibly scary. Pear does an incredible job creating a safe space, giving you resources, support, advice, access to mentors and advisors who can help you navigate the challenges that you have in front of you. They helped us start with a good footing and right foundation."

"When I think about Pear, the two biggest words that come to mind are people and community. You can always trust them to have your back to be incredibly trustworthy, hands on and involved, and they are super instrumental to helping us get to where we are."
Shubham Goel
Cofounder, Affinity
"Pear was the first one to take a bet on us. Pear has been our home for the first two years of this business so to say that they played a fundamental and foundation role may even be an understatement."
