FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can a team be at Pear Summer and another program simultaneously?
Yes! We’ve had teams at Pear Summer and other programs at the same time. 

Are you looking for teams in a particular vertical?
Nope. We’re vertical agnostic. You’re the entrepreneurial visionaries; we’re here to help you realize your vision.

How big of a commitment is this?
We require that teams dedicate themselves full-time over the course of our 10-week program. That said, you’ll get as much as you put into the program.

Will you consider international applicants?
Yes, so long as you can legally work and reside in the US during the course of our program. We’ve had international students join us from schools around the country.
