Pear VC is thrilled to kick off our Speaker Series with Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers and Mantis VC! The Pear VC Speaker Series is inclusive of prominent tech leaders and their insights on effective leadership, entrepreneurship, and lessons learned throughout their careers.
ABOUT ALEX PALL AND DREW TAGGART
*Please note this event will only feature Alex Pall.
GRAMMY® Award-winning RIAA Diamond-certified duo The Chainsmokers—Drew Taggart and Alex Pall—have not only left an indelible mark on music, but they’ve also strived to better the world as entrepreneurs, innovators, and philanthropists. They founded their very own Mantis Venture Capital in 2020. It manages nearly $1 billion in assets with a focus on improving the world and inventing a brighter tomorrow. Other businesses under their purview include a stake in the popular JAJA Tequila and The Chainsmokers’ very own film, television, and podcast production company, Kick The Habit Productions—which boasts a full slate of projects in development. At the same time, Drew and Alex give back at every turn. In the midst of the Global Pandemic, Drew and Alex funded the production and delivery of tens of thousands of PPE N95 masks to hospitals in New York and Las Vegas. The charity Youth Emerging Stronger recognized The Chainsmokers with the “Key of Hope Award” for their commitment to philanthropy and underprivileged children.
