For the criteria “proven track record or examples of innovation in the digital technology sector”, the guide states the following:
If you are an employee working in a new digital field or concept, this must be clearly demonstrated, for example by providing a patent application (patent should include verifiable ID on Google Patents).
None of the companies I’ve worked for applied for patents. Is there any other type of evidence that can prove innovation?
A document explaining your innovation with relevant evidence like screenshots, step by step explanation of the innovation funnel and any other evidence you can put together should work. Also make sure that you have an employer’s letter validating your claims where necessary.
PS: Not official Technation representative… I’ve seen this work for a few people. The documents they submitted with this explanation was really detailed with lots of evidence, also verified by their employer.
