About Raise

It came from the passion in the hearts of our team. Our mission has always been to raise the opportunities for people in developing countries, to allow those less fortunate to raise money for a better future and to raise the equality and transparency in the financial world through blockchain. After a creative session involving all team members, Raise was born.

Raise Chief Product & Technology Officer, Francesco Vivoli has said:

“We chose this name as we believe it delivers on our ethos and our plans to ensure the aspirations of both the lenders and the borrowers. Introducing the marketplace with a different name to our main business also allows us to generate even further traction and bring an additional community together to support our project and change the future for millions of people together.”

Along with our name, our logo has been developed based on the same ideology. As a team, we undertook a brainstorming session and we agreed that we needed a solid, recognisable and modern new logo. Our UX/UI designer explains more:

“With the introduction of such an innovative new name with ‘Raise’, we wanted to create something a little bit different. We decided to start the website from the bottom and allow the users to raise up through the different sections of the website. The logo itself is a ‘modern-take’ on the Chinese lanterns that raise to the sky to bring good luck and enlightenment to those who set them alight. We felt this was a wonderful metaphor for the opportunities our lenders can bring to our borrowers.”
