MC- 1. How do you plan to evidence this documentary? Do you have evidence of invitation email or letter seeking your contribution to the documentary?
2. How recent is this news paper interview. What’s the readership?

  1. How do you demonstrate that acceptance into the startup programme suggests you are a leader. What’s the acceptance rate for this programme?

  2. If you use reference letters from the CEO and board member, I hope you know you can’t use them as for both recommendation letters and evidence.

How does communication between you and magazine show you have advanced the sector? Aside the initial communication, were you eventually featured in the publication? If that’s not the case, it doesn’t count.

How do you evidence your contribution to Channel Africa?
Just getting an image of you at the event doesn’t say anything. Get a reference letter from the organiser and ask them for pictures of the event.

Screenshot of memorandum of your agreement is fine but was the funding substantial. Did you you explain your significant contribution to fundraising and the growth of the company.
There’s no point showing evidence of the Google for start up, you were not selected, so it is doesn’t show any impact.
Show the product you have built, revenue you have generated…
