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.
The difference with Pear is that even after several rounds of funding, they continue to work with us and add value.
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.
