Nils started 2 startups and sold a company to Dropbox. At his companies, Nils defined the company strategy, ran customer development, told their story, raised capital, grew and managed the team, sold product, and took out the trash. He graduated with an MSEE from Stanford University and holds 23 issued patents.
At Pear, Nils is focused on B2B pre-seed and seed startups. He has a soft spot for low-friction, self-serve and inside-sales driven B2B products.
He loves helping exceptional founders find their first customers, search for product/market fit, tell their stories, and raise capital starting from day zero.
