Danielle joined the Pear Family in February as an Associate on our investment team working with students and recent grad entrepreneurs.
Prior to Pear, Danielle was an Investment Banking associate at Bank of America in the Equity Capital Markets group, working on initial public offerings in the technology sector. She graduated from Columbia University with a BS in Operations Research and a minor in Computer Science.
At Pear, Danielle works to find and support student and recent grad entrepreneurs at the earliest stages who are building the next wave of category-defining companies. She’s passionate about making entrepreneurship more accessible to students and is excited to do so at Pear.
“After speaking with members of the Pear team, I was impressed by the amount of support they provide to early stage founders, particularly student founders. In college, entrepreneurship felt almost inaccessible to me so I was looking for a place where I could reverse that narrative. Pear is that place.”
Outside of work, Danielle enjoys exploring SF, running & hiking, and testing new cookie recipes.
