Stifel Venture Banking, a national innovation banking practice focused on founders and investors, and Ramp, the first finance automation platform and corporate card designed to help businesses spend less, today announce a partnership to provide Stifel’s clients with access to Ramp’s industry-leading corporate cards and expense management software. This strategic partnership brings together two industry leaders jointly looking to best service the needs of the venture and startup community.  


Stifel Bank identified Ramp as a valuable partner based on its proven track record of helping 15,000 businesses save over $600M and 8.5M hours of work. In the wake of the bank crisis earlier this year, Stifel Bank and Ramp understand more than ever the importance for financial institutions to establish trust with clients and the broader startup community.  Together, we’re committed to providing clients with the resources they need to grow their businesses with the service model and attention they deserve.


“Partnering with best of breed platforms like Ramp is a key component of our vision of building the premier venture bank to support entrepreneurs and their investors,” said Jake Moseley, Managing Director, Stifel Venture Banking. “Our team’s deep industry expertise and Ramp’s modern capabilities is a powerful combination to support modern finance teams as they scale their business.”


Through the partnership, Stifel clients can apply for a Ramp card and will benefit from the following features:

  • Powerful physical and virtual cards with generous perks and cash back
  • Zero touch expenses to help control, analyze, and optimize spending
  • Hyper intelligence to maximize savings and cut spend with insights

“In this market, startups are under increased financial pressure and looking to extract the most out of every dollar,” said Michael Cohen, VP of Partnerships, Ramp. “We’re proud to partner with Stifel to deliver the startup community the tools they need to save time and money when it matters most.”
