Additional information

Since its launch in 2013, the RAISE Group has purposefully acted as a benevolent long-term investor, establishing evergreen vehicles[1] with 99 year lifetimes, and above all building a unique model based on shared success. The Group’s investment teams have committed to donating 50% of their carried interest[2] and 10% of their time to the philanthropic accelerator RAISESHERPAS, the Group’s endowment fund. Over a seven-year period, the Group has diversified its business activities to cover every growth stage of companies and expanded its range of services: venture capital investing (RAISE Ventures), small-cap impact investing (RAISE Impact), mid-cap development (RAISE Investissement), real estate and offices (RAISE REIM), as well as philanthropic support for start-ups (RAISESHERPAS) and open innovation support (RaiseLab).
