We cultivate a vibrant community of founders who help each other grow.

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 through our Speaker Series, Pitch!, Workshops, CEO Dinners, Hackathons, and Networking. In response to the current circumstances we have transitioned to a virtual community -- see 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.

Speakers & Workshops

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!

Social Events

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 past events include fun networking opportunities such as happy hours, Napa trips, SF Bay cruises, brunches, Food Truck Block Party, and many others.

CEO Dinners

Our intimate CEO dinners provide our portfolio CEOs with opportunities to learn what it takes to become great leaders in their industry categories. These workshop-style dinners are led by leading veteran CEOs in our network and provide valuable insights and heard-earned lessons from outstanding companies.

Hackathons

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.
