We’ve founded 10+ companies and invested early in startups now worth over $50B. We’ve been in your shoes, we have the scars from being founders ourselves, and we know it takes incredible effort and determination to transform an idea into a category-defining company. We roll up our sleeves and provide hands-on support to our founders, which leads to big results. Our track record speaks for itself: in just 9 years, we have seeded 7 companies currently valued over $1B and 3 public companies.
We lead pre-seed rounds. Our pre-seed companies participate in PearX, an early-stage bootcamp for founders with high potential ideas. We help founders build the right product, find the right market, and lay the foundations for a scalable venture company.Learn more
We lead and co-lead seed stage investments. Then we roll up our sleeves to get you to Series A. We help founders in four key areas: product-market fit, go-to-market, recruiting, and fundraising.Learn more

The Pear team believed in us from the beginning and was instrumental in our early success.
Pejman and Mar and the Pear team’s philosophy has always been first and foremost to bet on the people.
Pear is always there when we need help or advice, one of our strongest champions, bringing important investors and partners to us.
Pear Garage gave you a community and a network of friends, made it feel like you weren’t alone.
Whether it’s fundraising prep, investor intros, or hiring the extended Pear team has always been there when we had an operational problem to solve.
Pear has supported us at every step in our journey. They are a unique team – kind, thoughtful, and willing to roll up their sleeves to help.
Pear took us by the hand from day one and has nurtured Frubana to grow into a mature and resilient company.
Pear is, in my humble opinion, the most extraordinary early-stage investment firm ever created. The secret of their success is their completely founder-first ethos.
When we started out, we didn’t have much more than an idea and prototype. Pear gave us a home and always picks up the phone.
