In collaboration with our scientific committee and analysts, we have set up a startup rating methodology based on three main pillars: management, project and market.
First of all, the Early Metrics rating model is based on the crucial step of interviewing members of the startup's founding team. We analyse qualitative data points, from the entrepreneurs' skills to their ability to effectively execute their growth plan.
Our second pillar focuses on the project carried by the entrepreneurs. In addition to the business model and traditional traction, we look at market positioning, business trends, technology and execution. This provides an in-depth understanding of the startup's innovation and its deployment potential.
On the market side, we go further than simply calculating the addressable market size. We focus on measuring a tech startup's ability to expand its activities in its environment, assessing the power relationships between stakeholders and measuring the market's appetite for innovation.
We regularly conduct statistical tests to validate the robustness of our methodology. Moreover, we continuously optimise our startup rating model by leveraging our large database of innovative companies.
