​Thursday, October 13th 1:30 pm PT

​Join us for Demo Day at Filoli Gardens! This is our first in-person Demo Day since the start of the pandemic, and we couldn't be more excited to see all of our friends in-person after so long and to introduce the 12 amazing teams in the Pear S22 cohort.

Following the Demo Day pitches in the Lecture Hall, we’ll be throwing a garden party in the gardens with food, drinks, and a jazz band. You will have the opportunity to meet our founders face-to-face, which is something we’ve all been missing over the last two years. 

Due to the capacity constraints at the venue, space is extremely limited and unfortunately we won't have room for everyone. We can host 150 people in person, so please RSVP as soon as possible. ​Other details will be sent along with email confirmation.


Our small batch Accelerator has a strong track record. A few of our notable alumni include: Xilis, Viz.Ai, Affinity, Wagr, and Nova Credit. Out of the 77 companies that have gone through our Accelerator, 12 are worth $100M+ and 1 is worth $1B+.


​Pear VC is a pre-seed and seed stage VC firm that partners with entrepreneurs from the earliest days to build category defining companies. We've invested in top-tier companies including Doordash, Gusto, Branch, Guardant Health, Aurora Solar, Vanta, Affinity and so many more. We're company builders, having founded 10 companies: we help companies find product-market fit, recruit their first engineering hire, and overcome other critical business challenges.
