Who are we?

exægis, the leading rating agency in the digital sector

 

For over five years, exaegis has been the leading rating agency in the digital sector. We offer three rating models according to the type of digital company assessed, for start-ups and mature companies in business for over three years, with less than €15 million turnover. We also issue the StarTRUXT and TRUXT labels to the companies with the best reports, whose financial longevity and good operational capacity is immediately recognisable.

In addition to rating, exaegis provides its service continuity plan to companies offering multi-year contracts “as a service”, as an assurance to the funders who finance these contracts, and to the end customers who want to know that their contracts are secure.

exægis also demonstrates its expertise through studies and reports on the digital sector, and continuous monitoring and surveillance.

exaegis targets start-ups, publishers, IT and digital service companies, and its customers are stakeholders in the finance sector, such as investors, investment funds, banks, insurers, landlords and tenants, and the end customers, which may be Corporate Accounts or Medium-Sized Companies.

Start-ups

You’re the (co)founder of a start-up and are looking for investors, you’re building a campaign to get your first customers. You’re meeting a lot of people, covering many miles on foot, on the underground, in the car, by air or train, and want to speed up your search and generate increased attention for your project. You want to respond effectively to the objections of people who say:

iconmonstr-quote-5-32   The idea is good, but…

 

RateAndGo: the rating service

RateAndGo will help you, free of charge, to remove these obstacles to establishing initial relations:

  • by correctly targeting your needs (sector of activity, business model, etc.) according to your stage of development;
  • by benchmarking the quality of execution of your project against the reference standard of good start-upper practices, drawn up by the RateAndGo analysts, to inspire confidence of potential investors in the project. The questionnaire takes into account the stage of development of your start-up so don’t panic! We don’t expect the same degree of rigour from a start-up looking for starter funding as for a start-up looking for development capital.

 

How to use the service?

This exercise requires you to:

speech-bubble-28-32  Fill in a questionnaire of around 50 questions;

video-camera-1-32  Record your pitch using our video recording tool.

The RateAndGo passport issued to you will help to arouse your curiosity about some of the grey areas in your business model, and find new ingredients you can add to it to help you progress. You can update your questionnaire whenever you like!

If your rating is above 60%, the RateAndGo passport can be used to communicate your financial and operational capacities to investors and Corporate Accounts. Basically, the passport will help you promote your start-up’s image!

Free and easy to use, the RateandGo questionnaire has helped us structure our company, by focusing on successful products and success factors, and by showing us the steps we still need to take.

The questions asked are very relevant for an initial approach, I can see just what I’m missing! A good checklist.

The questionnaire is a little long but it helped us review our whole project by emphasising or highlighting the points that need to be improved. The questions are relevant and the process is well designed.

— RateAndGo: the service —

RateAndGo offers a rating that assesses the maturity of the start-up based on objective criteria. These criteria are defined by a collection of start-up development “best practices”, based on the most recent research (sources and methodology available on request). As project execution is just as important as a good idea, RateAndGo has used its rating experience to develop an assessment standard determining the quality of the start-up’s management. This standard is supplied with data provided by the project leader, and accompanied by a number of documents (business model, forecasts etc.).

iconmonstr-quote-5-32  Access a rating that gives you more information.

Meeting project leaders can be time-consuming. RateAndGo completes its assessment by recording videos of start-uppers answering central questions about the creation of the company and its investors.
