I was a co-founder in my friend's startup for 6 months in India. It was something out of passion, not about money. So, the Company wasn't registered legally, all 10 of us were volunteering our services for free.
I got into a top software company, in the process I wrote co-founder of the startup in the experience section. In background check, they have asked for proof about all work experiences mentioned (certificate, letter of resignation/employment, or tax receipt).
So my question here is, how should I go about providing support documents? I am thinking to provide them with a certificate issued by another co-founder (the CEO) who can act as my reference. Reasons, why I think so, is:-
- Company has a website running last 10months with good traffic.
- I have my name/photo/credentials mentioned on the home page
- I have my email with the startup's domain - myName@StartupName.com
But before I go ahead, I wanted to hear from more experienced people like you.. just in case I am doing it inappropriately. Please drop your valuable advice.
