Orange Digital Ventures, the early-stage corporate investment vehicle of telecom operator Orange, has invested in German savings deposit marketplace Raisin as part of the latter’s €100m Series D funding round.

The amount Orange Digital Ventures invested was not revealed.

“Raisin’s solution aligns with Orange’s strategic objectives, particularly in mobile financial services, where the group has two key strong initiatives with Orange Bank in Europe and Orange Money in Africa,” Raisin noted.

Earlier this year, Raisin raised money as part of the Series D round.

Participants were PayPal, Index Ventures, Ribbit Capital as well as Thrive Capital, all of whom were existing investors.

Commenting on the latest investment, Raisin co-founder and CEO Tamaz Georgadze said: “It’s particularly exciting for us because Orange has a proven track record, as both a successful international mobile operator and an accomplished financial technology provider.
