Elevator Ventures is Raiffeisen Bank International‘s corporate venture capital entity. It focuses on strategic direct investments in later-stage fintechs, co-investments with partner investors and investments in VC funds.

Elevator Venture’s goal is the financing of strategic partnerships with promising later-stage fintechs, that could be valuable additions to RBI’s current portfolio.

With more than 30 years of expertise in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and an innovative network there, RBI can play an active role in helping fintechs to expand into this dynamic region.

Elevator Ventures cooperates closely with „Elevator Lab“, now the largest fintech accelerator program in the CEE region. RBI can thereby offer potential follow-up investments to the participants of the accelerator program and, at the same time, Elevator Ventures portfolio companies benefit from close connections to RBI and a structured piloting process to enable a strategic cooperation with RBI.
