Update: Innovation Direct™ receives reply to follow-up e-mail from Evriholder Products; copy of permanent NDA sent for possible signature…
Good evening, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, back in with an update on a situation we’d just reported about in an entry earlier this afternoon (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1217). Monday afternoon, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of International Home and Housewares Show 2009 exhibitor Evriholder Products received a reply from his contact at the firm regarding the phone message he’d left him earlier in the day requesting feedback on the preliminary, non-confidential information on 10 inventions contained in their initial package.
In his reply, which came via e-mail, the Evriholder contact explained that he felt he needed more information than the preliminary, non-confidential material initially sent in order to make a decision on which concepts would be of further interest. In return, our colleague sent the Evriholder representative a copy of an NDA via e-mail, and reminded him that the document would need to be executed before any detailed design information on the product ideas was shared. Our colleague also suggested that a permanent version of the confidentiality agreement could be executed so as to streamline the invention information delivery process in the future.
We look forward to Evriholder’s reply and are certainly enthused by the fact that we have finally re-established communication with the company. Check in with us on the Innovation Direct™ Blog for the latest news regarding this situation!
