About Pillar VC

We started Pillar with the belief that there has to be a better way for founders and investors to align; with the belief that VC doesn’t have to be the darkside. If we treat humans the way we want to be treated, then good things will happen. By aligning the incentives, actions, and decisions to the mutual benefit of both the entrepreneur and Pillar, our hope is that we will engender trust, and from that, achieve profound results together. It’s that simple.

We are the first-capital-in for founders building the next-generation of pillar companies in Boston, and aim to be a founder’s best hire — helping drive incredible results through years of experience, relationships, and a true partnership.

Having recently launched our second fund, we manage over $150M, and are proud investors in over 45 companies that are moving technology, business, science, and Boston forward.
