Our mission is to create a more transparent world through data.


There Wasn't a Better Way, So We Created One

Incubated at MIT in 2017, Sigma Ratings was founded by two aspiring entrepreneurs who realized the need for change.

Starting with the mission to make the world more transparent by highlighting and standardizing metrics for good corporate behavior, Sigma began offering Certified Ratings which leverage public and private data on companies to create a rating. These ratings are especially beneficial in highlighting institutions, with effective compliance, in jurisdictions perceived as high-risk, exemplified here.

The Sigma team also recognized that by using AI and machine learning it could achieve its mission at global scale through the collection, organization and scoring of public data alone. To date, Sigma has organized over 100 billion data points on over 900 million companies and people globally to make it the world’s most comprehensive risk analysis database.
