Update: Innovation Direct™ receives reply from Homegarde Products, Inc. regarding product categories, confidentiality policy; copy of permanent version of NDA sent to company for review…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, back in again with another report. Earlier Friday, the Innovation Direct™ representative that will manage the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of Homegarde Products, Inc. received a reply to the e-mail he’d sent the company contact yesterday regarding their product categories of interest and confidentiality policies (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1207).
As per the communication received, the company is interested in reviewing home safety and health-related products and is willing to sign non-disclosure agreements as necessary. In response, our aforementioned colleague offered Homegarde the option of signing a permanent version of our confidentiality agreement, so as to allow us to send them access to all of the detailed design information on concepts right from the onset of them being preselected to be presented.
We are hopeful that Homegarde will consider this course of action, which always streamlines the process of presenting invention information and obtaining subsequent feedback. Check back in with us on the Innovation Direct™ Blog as we continue to update you on any developments regarding this situation!
