Hi lovely people, I have been encouraged by the amount of generosity and support people give to each other on this forum and would like to receive feedback from the community on my application through the exceptional promise route as a digital marketing professional.
Background on me: moved to London last year with the High Potential Individual visa and was totally impressed by the UK’s progressive policies on tech innovation and environment. Hoping to further develop my career in London. Prior to this, I worked as a Data Scientist for a marketing tech startup in the US and am a founder of two fashion tech companies. One of them was selected for the Startupbootcamp accelerator.
Total 4.5 years of experience in tech as a data scientist, founder, and growth marketing lead.
Recommendation Letter 1: from my mentor for the past five years, seasoned tech startup founder with two successful exits
Recommendation Letter 2: VP of an IPOed company, known me for the past two years through one of my startup
Recommendation Letter 3: Seasoned tech startup founder from the accelerator program
Investment agreement from Startupbootcamp
International Speaking events I attended with Youtube Video screenshot. (this happened during covid events are virtual)
Press coverage on my startup (my alma matter’s website showcasing my startup journey as a founder and my contributions to the leading UK fashion forum)
Awards I received in the past five years (one national level another international)
Employment contracts at startups A and D where I had high salary 90% percentile
Two Self-written evidence on the innovations I contributed for startup A,B,C
Employer letter from startup D’s CEO endorsing the impact I contributed to the business
Two self-written documents on the impact I had for startup D including massive increase on click-through rate, decrease on cost per click, and decrease on customer acquisitions cost.
I am applying as a business applicant in digital marketing.
My main worries are that
- Startups I founded B and C are not commercially successful. But they are innovative with 3rd party evidence supporting it. Will this weaken my qualification for OC1?
- I have only been with startup D for 8 months and been promoted to the Growth Marketing Lead for the past 4 months. Is this evidence too recent?
Please review my list of evidence. Any feedback is appreciated. I only have 2 days left to submit my application. Thank you guys!
