Greetings, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, chiming in with our latest report. Earlier Wednesday, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of California-based Sylmark pre-selected 10 inventions from our roster that will constitute the company’s initial package in the program. As we’d explained in an entry just yesterday (“Update: Innovation Direct™ receives communication from Sylmark regarding question about NDA; fully executed copy expected soon, searches begin for initial package…“), Sylmark representatives had mentioned that they would sending us a fully executed copy of their non-disclosure agreement, which both parties agreed would serve as a “permanent” guarantee of confidentiality between our companies.
As a result, Innovation Direct™ will be free to provide Sylmark with access to the detailed design information on product ideas right from the onset of when they are determined to meet the manufacturer’s criteria. A brief e-mail was sent to the company contact today alerting them to the fact that the initial batch of invention information was essentially ready to be sent to them as soon as the written guarantee of confidentiality was received.
