Update: Innovation Direct™ attempts telephone follow-up with potential licensee of sports accessory…
Good day, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our latest update on a sports accessory that has long been the subject of an advanced level of interest of an India-based manufacturer. We had most recently reported on this situation in an August 21st entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ seeks update from India-based manufacturer regarding evaluation and licensing proposal for sports accessory…“).
As we explained in that posting, we have previously sent 2 e-mails to the company president attempting to elicit his feedback on the licensing proposal we sent them a few months ago, as well as to obtain a progress report on their continued evaluation on the professional prototype of the item they had also received. With that method not resulting in a response, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing this situation since the onset attempted a telephone follow-up this morning.
The company, which is headquartered in India and therefore 9.5 hours ahead of the Eastern Time Zone, was apparently closed for the day on Thursday by the time we were able to place the call. As a result, another e-mail requesting an update was sent after the failed telephone communication, and we are certainly hopeful that our persistence will pay off on this occasion. If and when we do receive a response we will promptly provide an update, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Stay tuned for the latest!
