Update: Innovation Direct™ receives response from New Jersey-based Innovation Direct To Industry™ company regarding request for update…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our latest Innovation Direct To Industry™-related updated. In a July 22nd entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ seeks update from New Jersey-based sporting goods manufacturer…“), we had mentioned that Innovation Direct™ was seeking an update from the company that was the subject of that posting regarding the initial Innovation Direct To Industry™ package they had been sent back in March.
Earlier Friday, an e-mail response from the contact at the company was indeed received. In the correspondence, the company representative frankly explained that the pending review of the preliminary, non-confidential information on the 11 product ideas they’d been sent had fallen down the company’s priority list, but that they were still committed to reviewing the information eventually and informing us if any items were of further interest.
Although far from the ideal outcome at this time, this situation does illustrate the fact that inventors need to have patience in inexhaustible supply when pursuing their product idea to market. Innovation Direct™ appreciates the manufacturer’s candidness in the matter and will continue to hold out hope that we will eventually make licensing inroads with them.
