I have applied for the endorsement in mid of august I received the refusal on 31st and then the refusal of appeal is received yesterday. I happy to share the my document with you guys if any one can help me guiding to make my next application more stronger?
brief about my self. I have been working in IT from past 15 years currently working in the UK on work permit. I have a small Startup based in Dubai we have a product for business automation platform. I mainly used my startup experience to file the endorsement.
I covered the mandatory criteria with below points and i thought that this will enough.
“You led the growth of a product-led digital technology company, product or team inside a digital technology company, as evidenced by reference letter(s) from leading industry expert(s) describing your work, or as evidenced by news clippings, lines of code from public repos or similar evidence.”
to cover the above criteria, all three reference letter were referring to my role in my startup, also i have submitted a newsletter which talks about my product.
“You command a high salary or other remuneration for your services, as evidenced by commercial or employment contracts with salary information including any bonus and equity options and history of earnings.”
I have submitted my salary certificate from Dubai based company, also submitted the inital agreements between partners of startup.
technation accepted those docs but the refusal I got is
“The applicant has not shown how they have achieved a level of national or international recognition in the digital technology sector. They need to demonstrate leadership through a mixture of references from a wide network of established industry leaders or experts that detail how, what, and why they are a leader in their field; examples of significant media recognition; examples of high-profile speaking engagements such as keynote presentations at major tech conferences or published profiles or interviews in leading media outlets; or other forms of recognisable contributions.”
“The applicant has not been a keynote speaker at any major tech conference or event; he has not received any prizes or awards; he has not been profiled in any leading media outlet; and, he has not made any significant contributions to the wider community.”
to OC1 i have submitted a document which talks about the innovative work i did for Sharjah Govt UAE, three projects were presented in GITEX 2017-2018 and 2019 and the 2018 project has also got the best E-Service govt award. i have summited the reference letter which stats that 2018 was delivered by me along with it I have also submitted the Audit reports of my company but the refusal they didnt say anything about the gitex document they said that audit reports and other company document doesnt proof innovation.
i have submitted the technical details of my product where i had clearly mentioned my work but along with that i have submitted my current salary details which i am getting in the UK.
the refusal i got is that i didn’t provide any evidence of technical impact and my current salary which i am getting in the UK is does not proof any impact.
The appeal which i darfted was very log of 8 pages i tried to explain each and everything but the appeal refusal was almost the same.
