FarmRaise + Pear
We first met FarmRaise co-founders, Jayce and Sami, when they were students at the GSB. They participated in the Pear Accelerator (PearX), and we helped them build their concept into a venture-fundable company. The team needed more technical support, so we also helped them hire their CTO / technical co-founder.
After presenting at Demo Day, they raised a round led by Better Tomorrow Ventures. Later, they raised a subsequent seed round led by Susa Ventures.

We were fish out of water when it came to evaluating technical chops. We also didn’t have engineering networks where we could promote the opportunity. Through the Pear network we found our CTO. We really leaned on Pear, who helped us structure technical interviews. We would not have been able to find, evaluate, and hire our technical co-founder without Pear.
