We’re not just investing in your company

We’re Investing in you.

In a world where trust is paramount, traditional approaches often put VCs and founders at odds.
We’re doing it differently at Pillar VC.

We want you to grow with your company, and we’re invested in your personal and professional development along the way. Enjoy a healthy dose of self-care, on us.

Pillar VC was like a mom and dad for us in that first year — I have no idea how we would have managed without you!
