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 continued in our development
with new activities, one in real estate,
the other in venture capital.

Each of these three activities supports our philanthropic endowment fund, 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 support visionary and passionate entrepreneurs

Putting our ecosystem at their disposal to help them bring their projects to fruition.

Our driving force

To demonstrate, through evidence, that a benevolent economy is possible

And better yet, that it is more successful that the classical economic model.

Our values

THE SHARING OF SUCCESS

Generosity is the core
of our business model.

It is demanding, and implies rigour and know-how. Individual success and collective success are the two faces of the same coin:
they go hand in hand.

A PASSION TO CREATE

Which lights up each day,
is what brings entrepreneurs together.

To understand their challenges and their difficulties and, once we believe in their project, to support them, to fight along side them and turn their dreams and goals into reality by putting a first class partnership network at their disposal, and with them, build the keys to their success.

A REAL INTEREST IN PEOPLE

At RAISE, we're betting on
this coming together.

We are banking on trust. Trust in the men and women who are promoting the projects, whatever they may be. Our credo: grow together. We are a solid, long term, benevolent partnership. We make each entity grow, employing the diversity of the paths taken, experiences and know-how.

EXCELLENCE
 

Because we are partners
in trust.

Trust in the entrepreneurs who support us, and that our endowment fund rests on the performance of our management companies; we treat excellence as a duty.

Our shareholders
