​​​Pear VC is a pre-seed and seed stage VC firm that partners with entrepreneurs from their earliest days to build category defining companies. Pear has been investing in sustainability and climate tech since its inception: Aurora, Nobell Foods, Pearlstreet, Conduit, Repurpose Global, Windborne, Streamline, Farmraise, Lasso, Hertha and more. We're company builders, having founded 12 companies: we help companies find product-market fit, recruit their first engineering hire, and overcome other critical business challenges.

Streamline helps climate startups accelerate discovery, drafting, and management of grants, RFPs, accelerator applications by using the power of AI and language models to navigate policy on your behalf. They are still in private beta, but already working with leading climate tech companies like Perennial, Noya, Project Vesta, and Windborne.​​​​
