Apply to the Pear Accelerator

Summer 2020 program is accepting applications

Apply to Summer 2020

Application Process

  1. Submit as soon as you can to be considered for one of the limited slots. We will review the application and decide whether to invite you to the next step.
  2. 10-minute interview with Pear partners via Zoom. No slides!
  3. Interview Pear partners face-to-face. You should treat this similar to any early-stage pitch meeting. We recommend having a standard investor slide deck for this meeting.
  4. Final full partnership meeting face-to-face. Pitch the full Pear partnership and get to know us more. We don't bite.
  5. We review all we've learned and decide whether to accept you into the program.
  6. Execute standard legal paperwork - a convertible note and side letter - that officially enrolls you in the program.

Application Requirements

There are a few requirements for you to get the most out of the Pear Accelerator:

  1. You and your co-founders are working full-time on your company
  2. You will work out of Pear's bay area offices for the duration of the program. In most cases we can host your whole team!
  3. You have or will create a Delaware C corporation for your company
