@Francisca_Chiedu please help

I think you have a solid application. Just some few missing piece. Aside fundraising evidence, what other recognition do you have in the sector awards? Speaking event?

For OC1, you application is also focused revenue what about evidence of the actual product?

For OC3 you could add your salary as evidence. Also avoid self authored evidence.

Thanks for the reply @Francisca_Chiedu.

I have newspaper clippings for one of my ventures but I’m afraid I don’t have anything for my current startup.

For OC1, I’ll also add the product screenshots from Appstore for both products.

For OC3, I’m showcasing the letters from my customers especially someone who works in the NHS. Isn’t that credible evidence that showcases the innovation and its impact on UK’s healthcare system?
