Update: Innovation Direct™ receives requested response from CD3 representative; Innovation Direct To Industry™ program still a possibility…
Good day, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with another update. Earlier Monday, the Innovation Direct™ representative that will manage the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of ERA member CD3 should they elect to become a part of the program received a reply from the point of contact regarding new product submissions for the company. As we’d explained in an entry on July 31st (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1121), our aforementioned colleague had sent the gentleman an e-mail requesting more details on CD3’s confidentiality policies and product categories of preference.
As per the communication received Monday, CD3 has established relationships with television shopping leader QVC in various countries, and so is always interested in items that might fit that distribution model. The correspondence went on to emphasize that CD3 is also able to assist in brokering deals with companies that do license inventions. Our colleague did reply with a full overview of Innovation Direct™’s services, in an effort to help the CD3 representative make a final determination on whether or not our companies would be able to work together.
