Update: Innovation Direct™ receives final feedback from Georgia-based manufacturer regarding specialized carpeting accessory…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with an update on a situation we had initially reported on in an August 11th entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ inventor’s specialized carpeting idea receiving initial interest from Georgia-based manufacturer…“). As we had explained in that posting, a Georgia-based manufacturer had expressed initial interest in a product idea from the Innovation Direct™ roster after reviewing preliminary, non-confidential information about it and had been sent a non-disclosure agreement by Innovation Direct™ in response.
We have now received a response from our contact at the company explaining that after further deliberation, they will not be pursuing the invention any further. As explained in the contact’s e-mail to Innovation Direct™, they are a contract manufacturer that does not have the marketing capabilities required to potentially license and subsequently distribute the product into the consumer market.
This minor setback nonwithstanding, Innovation Direct™ will continue undeterred in its mission to achieve licensing success with this invention. Stay tuned to the Innovation Direct™ Blog for the latest!
