RAISE

Convinced that an economy is more successful if it is benevolent, Clara Gaymard and Gonzague de Blignières have created RAISE: a pioneering French company where experience, success and creative passion are shared.

RAISE was born in 2013 from the desire
to invent a new way
of doing business.

Our ambition: to create an efficient,
benevolent, civic ecosystem that will help
France via entrepreneurs who innovate,
create jobs and nourish growth.

Our 58 shareholders are among the largest successful companies in France.
RAISE Investissement invests in Medium Size Businesses to support them and help them grow. Building on our success, we have developed  complementary activities in venture capital, impact and real estate.

Each of those activities supports our philanthropic endowment fund RAISESHERPAS, which is dedicated to startups: our investment teams donate 50% of their profit to finance
the support of startups,
in order to secure lasting growth.

« Philanthropy
is at the heart of our model. »
Clara Gaymard and Gonzague de Blignières
/ Co-founders of RAISE

we build bridges between all the actors that contribute to the growth
of our country

At RAISE, large companies help medium sized companies to grow, and the success of the medium sized companies fuels the growth of smaller ones.

Our conviction is that benevolence
is not simply an attitude,
but is a true driving force.

This is the reason that we create bridges between all of the actors who provide growth in our country – large companies in the CAC 40, Medium Size Businesses, startups – and we create connections between accomplished talents and the talents of the future.

Today, RAISE is a virtuous ecosystem
for growth and mutual assistance, built on
bold positioning and performance
based on sharing.

Together, we want to inspire a new
growth model founded on benevolence.

Our purpose

« To develop an innovative and generous ecosystem to support visionary entrepreneurs and build a responsible and sustainable economy with them. »

Endowed with a Raison d’Être as early as 2017, even before the PACTE law was put in place, RAISE made the choice to carry it even higher by writing it into its statutes in 2021.

Since 2022, the RAISE group, a pioneer in a committed and responsible finance, has taken a new step in its commitment and become a « Company with a Mission ».
