OC2 - Invitations alone do not suffice. Pictures, video links, media coverage of you in action are crucial. Statistics on the size of mentorship are also important as one-on-one mentorships are not regarded. Additional details about the originating entities (I mean those inviting you) are equally important.


hi @ask4jubad

Thanks very much for your help!

I do not have any public videos online, do you think the pictures of me lecturing to students as a mentor at university acceptable? As well as a certificate from the university showing the duration of my lectures, the number of attendance, the reasons for inviting me and the lecture outline.

Thanks again and hope you have a nice day! :slight_smile:


You don’t have sufficient evidence to meet the criteria.

  1. If the salary is not high then no point adding it.
  2. Media coverage of what?
  3. What’s the reference letter about?


  1. Letter of invitation is not sufficient.
    Note that “You must be able to demonstrate a consistent track record of mentoring and have received recognition for your personal contribution. Mentoring at a university or a single startup is not sufficient. When mentoring alongside other mentors (for example at a top-tier accelerator) you must have been a senior mentor that may be evidenced through a letter of reference from the programme”. All you evidence for OC2 are not strong enough to meet the criteria.

OC3, if the letter is well written to demonstrate your impact, it should be fine.


thanks very much for your reply!

I was also invited by the university to be a lecturer for a semester on how to make games using unity 3D. I have the following evidence of this:

  1. photos of teaching
  2. a certificate from the university with stamp to prove my lecturer experience, and why I’m selected to be the lecturer
  3. a letter of recommendation from the head of teaching to describe how my lecture helped 6. students get into working in the games industry.

Could you please help me check if the evidence is sufficient? @Francisca_Chiedu

Thanks very much!
