@Francisca_Chiedu please, kindly give advice, I’ll appreciate it so much

@Chaitanya_Bapat Please, kindly provide advice

Looks solid. It’ll be interesting to see you fit so many screenshots & proofs in 1 single 3-page PDF
How did you manage that?
For #2 and #5 especially

Thanks for your feedback @Chaitanya_Bapat
I cropped some of the snapshots to show the essentials but I ensured it showed the URL in the browser. I have a 5-8 line summary at the start of the pdf that gives clarity to all documents in the respective evidence.

@Olubunmi_Fajuyigbe please, can you spare a minute to look at my application?

Looks great, but I think you have a lot in number 2.
Also when you say financial projection, does it mean the product is not yet in the market?
Finally, do you have any mentoring experience, if yes, I think you should add it.
All the best.

All of this is my personal opinion. Do well to read the guide as many times as you can. It gets clearer each time.

@Olubunmi_Fajuyigbe Thanks for your feedback
No. 2 seems to have much there but they are all serving as evidence for a single product and all fit perfectly into 3 A4 sides

I used financial projections because its a new product that just entered the market, although its an innovative product. I’m repeating evidence 2 with slight changes because it also points to innovation

And i do not have mentoring experience

@Francisca_Chiedu Can you please spare a minute to look at my application?
