The RAISE Ventures team is also in charge of managing 2 specific investment activities :
RAISE Seed for Good, a vehicle dedicated to funding Seed startups and to the emergence of future European leaders in responsible Tech.
RAISE Seed for Good is the first European VC fund to integrate ESG criteria into its investment and support strategy from the seed stage in order to help the future European leaders of responsible Tech emerge. Its ambition? To become the pioneer in the financing of a new asset class capable of generating a twofold financial and environmental & social performance.
RAISE Seed for Good focuses on the most promising young projects that respond to the social and environmental issues dear to the RAISE group and that strive to become international leaders in their market. The team is aiming for a portfolio of around 30 investments with a target fund size of €80M, to invest in France and Europe in amounts ranging from €500,000 to €1.5 million. Seed for Good will invest in all sectors, and will support the champions of its portfolio from seed to series B. Its investment strategy aims to address experienced entrepreneurs with scalable solutions and strong international ambitions from the start.
RAISE Media Investment, a media investment firm dedicated to startups and operated by RAISE on behalf of the TF1 Group.
The purpose of RAISE Media Investment is to help selected startups grow more rapidly and become more visible; this is achieved through advertising campaigns on TF1 Group’s various media and by taking advantage of the customised support offered by RAISE’s unique ecosystem.
The media investment is an alternative investment model that offers visibility to young companies in exchange for capital. Within the framework of such a collaboration, televised and digital media are presented on the channels and digital platforms of the TF1 Group, in exchange for a stake – from between 1 and 5 million Euros – in the capital of the startups. The startups therefore also benefit, in market conditions, from the power of the ad space of the TF1 Group, in growing their businesses.
The structure plans the first operation in the next few months, and the implementation of several operations per year.
