What is Pear Garage?

Pear Garage is our community for the top 25 entrepreneurial engineering students in the US.

This is an opportunity for you as students to take risks on big ideas and to learn about company building from the Pear team and other outstanding engineers. Garage will help you go from idea to MVP, and the program will culminate with a pitch to the Pear team.

Garage events are twice per month for 9 months:

  • Oct - Dec: Social events. Get to know everyone in the cohort! Maybe even find a co-founder.

  • Jan - Mar: Company building. Office Hours with Pear Partners plus Founder Circles with peers.

  • Apr - May: Pitch and graduate. The best teams will earn a spot in our Summer Accelerator.

About Pear

As founders, our team has built eight companies and we share that hands-on experience with the next generation. As investors, we have been fortunate to partner early with companies now valued at over $80B, including Doordash, Branch, Gusto, and Guardant Health.

Our strong belief in student founders is demonstrated by 49% of our portfolio companies being founded by students. Over the past seven years, we have formed a machine to support students who are building the next wave of category-defining companies. You can learn more about how we support founders here.
