The Pear Fellowship is a VC apprenticeship designed to supercharge your readiness for a career in venture. Fellows are granted unparalleled access to dealflow, along with immersive training at our fall kick-off summit in San Francisco (including coverage for travel and accommodations), complemented by ongoing educational sessions.

Fellows are empowered to design their own programming, build relationships with founders, conduct diligence, and formulate industry theses while at Pear. Apply and learn more at
