Update: Innovation Direct™ receives response to e-mail regarding lawn and garden invention from Around The Home…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in for the first time on a Tuesday with an update we had just reported on in an entry yesterday (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1032). Earlier Tuesday, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of Ohio-based Around The Home received an e-mail response from his contact at the firm regarding the follow-up e-mail he’d sent him about a lawn and garden concept from their latest package that they’d taken an advanced level of interest in.
As we’d explained in the aforementioned posting, the company had received confirmation from our colleague that the invention did not have a prototype or patent protection of any kind, as they’d requested we determine. As per this afternoon’s response, Around The Home is not prepared to invest into having a prototype of the product prepared in order to test its effectiveness, and will therefore put their interest in it on hold for the time being.
We will continue to provide any and all relevant updates to this situation, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Join us often!
