Pear partners with founders of all experience levels and backgrounds, from startup veterans such as Lou Montulli, inventor of the cookie and founding engineer of Netscape, to fresh college students such as Paige Brown, founder of Windborne. Our founders hail from every inhabited continent -- Silicon Valley natives, immigrants like much of our team, and entrepreneurs building international businesses.
While our founders are diverse in many ways, they share a common determination to shape the world through their companies, and we are honored to help them achieve their visions.
When we partner with you with as a founder, we become an extension of your team.
First we invest in your pre-seed or seed round, and then aim to invest in every round up to IPO. We generally write a first check of $250K to $3M.
