Hi all, @Francisca_Chiedu, @somdipdey,
Following is my profile:
a. 18+ years of experience in technology, Ex-CTO for a digital startup
b. Award-winning digital technology project
c. Serial Inventor with multiple patents filed in Digital technologies
d. Award-winning Angel Investor
e. Award-winning Startup entrepreneur
f. Successfully graduated from the popular startup accelerator
g. Featured in both International & National media for my work
Based on my profile, I have created the following 10 evidence documents covering proofs (Screenshots, Source URLs, data and etc…)
Given examples with impacts created and how I’m going to contribute to UK’s economy
I have chosen the following 3 criteria (MC, OC1 & OC3) and planning to submit a document under them
Request you to please review and share your suggestions.
- Entrepreneurship Journey as AI/ML entrepreneur
- Government Recognition & Benefits
Optional Criteria 1:
- Startup Activities
- Selection to Accelerator
- Awards International & National
- Future Plans (Discussions with VCs, Fortune 500 Companies etc…)
Optional Criteria 3:
- Angel Investments in Digital Startups
- Thought Leadership
- Media Coverages
Also, suggest if I have to change OC3 to OC2 as all works are executed out of immediate occupation
Looking forward to your valuable feedback.
Your OC1 doesn’t clearly demonstrate innovation. Your patents should be suitable in OC1.
You can read the post explaining innovation here.
Noted @May, thank you for the feedback.
Will change it.
Hope rest is fine?
Wanted to check this, is there any minimum number of documents to be uploaded under each criteria?
Thank you @May for your response,
Please find my update for the questions you have asked. Please help me with any other inputs based on below which will help me to further fine tuning my criterias.
Q.Startup activities: is it innovative (OC1) or impactful (OC3)?
A. Startup is very innovative in nature and is first of its kind in the country, I have inlcuded launch of Marketplace, employee contracts, customer contracts, licensing contracts, Pitch Deck, article of association
Q. Media coverage of what exactly in OC3? If it’s about a product you developed and the media is a major publication and it mentions you then it should fit in MC.

Q. What does Thought leadership in OC3 mean?
A. It about my scientific contributions published in various journals both nationally and internationally
Q. Angel Investments in Digital Startups - did you secure this investment for the startups or did the investment come out of your significant contribution to the startup? You need to be clear on the impact on those companies. Are they product-led startups?
A. These are the startups where I have invested in

Based in your profile your mandatory criteria should show your feature in both local and international media.
