Update: Innovation Direct™ faciliates conference call with inventor of plumbing accessory and licensee; prototype to be shipped to manufacturer…

Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking back in with an update on a situation we had just reported on in a February 11 posting (“Update: International Technology Transfer conducts telephone meeting with Texas-based Innovation Direct To Industry™ plumbing products manufacturer; one invention remains subject of advanced level of interest, exclusive developmental agreement a possibility…“). Late Tuesday afternoon, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of the company that was the subject of that entry facilitated a conference call that included himself, the inventor of a plumbing accessory, and the manufacturer’s Director of Strategic Initiatives.

The call had been suggested after it had been determined that the company had some specific questions for the inventor after having viewed the product idea’s website. The inventor, who does have a working prototype of his concept, was able to address the company’s concerns to an extent, although they did request that the prototype be shipped to them for first-hand evaluation. The inventor had no qualms about agreeing to this and will be sending the sample in the coming days.

We are pleased about this company’s level of interest and certainly hope this scenario will culminate in licensing success. Check back with us often for updates!
