Hi to everyone,
A special warm thanks to Shreeniwas and Francisca for your assistance here on this platform.
I want to apply under the “exceptional promise” as a product manager. I was a founder of a fintech company +2 years ago. It was a digital savings platform using local mobile payment technologies, not bank cards. But I didn’t have enough traction with our customers and with a lack of funding I closed. However, I had a free session with a consultant to know if I was eligible for this visa. And she told me Yes, but I would have to well craft my story.
How can I add this experience as a failed founder for my OC1 (at least 2 examples of innovation)? She told me during this session that I can add 2 screenshots of 2 features of the product, and other pieces of evidence of the work I’ve been involved in the product development process (Miro board etc…), and add links to articles and screenshots highlighting the name of the project in the final stage of national and Panafrican competitions, for “prove proof of recognition”. (1)
Also, I want to add a letter of support from one of the customers who use our product to realize their personal projects, and a screenshot of her different savings accounts. But since we were B2C, she is an individual and she will not have a letterhead. Is it a problem with a support letter? (2)
I am gathering the other pieces of evidence LORs from the Head of well-known Tech accelerators I’ve been through etc…
I am wondering if it will be strong enough since the word “impact” came a lot on some rejections I saw here. Thanks for your feedback.
