What exactly are you using to proof Innovation in OC1. You have to provide thorough details about your innovation. For Exceptional Talent it should be a track record of innovation ideally more than one for the same product or different products.

Thank you @May for reviewing.

I am providing the company registration document of a dissolved company I cofounded, which shows my stake in the company.
I am also proving the financial account statement of the company in the first 6 months of launch( about 1.2m GBP)
a screenshot of the platform metrics showing the number of users and transactions, and finally another document showing my promotion/recommendation as Principal software engineer in my current company, how my earnings increased, and the equity letter I was given in the company.
