At Pear, we identify and partner with aspiring founders early on in their entrepreneurial journeys. As a result, we dedicate much of our time towards building a dynamic community–be it through our Speaker Series, Hackathons, Pitch Nights, CEO Dinners, Workshops, or Networking Events.
We further work towards empowering founders through building each of their personal networks–with one another, with our Operating Partners, and with the broader tech community. We have deep networks in Silicon Valley, and pride ourselves on our ability to connect founders with people that can help them achieve their ambitions.
We invite Silicon Valley superstars who have emerged as domain and industry experts to join us in intimate settings where they share their knowledge. We also host workshops, seminars and other learning opportunities for founders eager to enhance their skills. Great entrepreneurs never stop learning!
Our commitment to building a deep relationship with each of our founders includes getting to know their families and backgrounds. We consider each founder a member of the Pear family. Our events include fun networking opportunities such as happy hours, game nights, Napa trips, cruises around San Francisco Bay, brunches, our annual Food Truck Block Party, and many others.
Our small and intimate CEO dinner series provides our portfolio CEOs with opportunities to learn what it takes to become great leaders in their industries. These workshop-style dinners are led by leading veteran CEOs in our network and provide valuable and unique insights and lessons from incredible companies.
We invite top talent from across the country to solve real world problems in an intense, innovative and fun environment that fosters team formation and impactful solutions.
