Update: Innovation Direct™ receives response to follow-up from Oregon-based manufacturer regarding medical accessory…
Good afternoon, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’ s Director of Product Licensing, checking back in with another update regarding a situation we had most recently reported on yesterday (“Update: Innovation Direct™ attempts follow-up with Oregon-based manufacturer regarding information sent on medical accessory…“). As we’d explained in that entry, an Innovation Direct™ representative had placed a follow-up call to the principal of an Oregon-based manufacturer that had recently been sent preliminary, non-confidential information on a medical accessory for the Innovation Direct™ roster on the recommendation of a Florida-based company that had recently reviewed the idea.
A return call from the secretary at the company that a message had been left with yesterday stated that the gentleman that serves as our contact had apparently not received the initial e-mail containing the information, and requested it be resent. Accordingly, earlier Friday, the original e-mail was forwarded once again and this time, the company representative did confirm receipt almost immediately. In his reply, he also requested more information on the degree of product development and market research the inventor might have performed. The Innovation Direct™ representative managing this situation promptly replied and informed him that the inventor had a prototype and 26 years of experience in the medical industry but otherwise did not have additional research done on the invention as of yet.
We now await the manufacturer’s reply and signing of the non-disclosure agreement for the invention. We will continue to keep you updated every step of the way with this situation, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Stay tuned!
