Innovation Direct™ reaches out to Missouri-based inventor-friendly manufacturer regarding Innovation Direct To Industry™ program…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our first update for a Tuesday. Earlier Tuesday, an Innovation Direct™ representative had an extensive conversation with the Product Development Coordinator of a Missouri-based manufacturer that has been selling consumer products for over 120 years regarding the Innovation Direct To Industry™ program and their invention submission policies overall.
The company, which is interested in provisionally patented, patent pending, and patented inventions in the lawn and garden, garment, cleaning, gifts, outdoor living, hardware, and home improvement categories, has worked with inventors for over 30 years according to their official website, and are very receptive to reviewing innovations that can bolster their product lines. The company representative explained that they do have an online submission process that must be adhered to, meaning Innovation Direct™ representatives will be manually submitting the Innovation Direct To Industry™ packages themselves.
As was explained in the conversation, the online process makes the timely evaluation of the concepts feasible and allows the company to make as informed a decision as possible. We are certainly optimistic about what an ongoing relationship with this company might bring, and we look forward to reporting on many positive developments in the future.
