Update: Innovation Direct™ receives unexpected request for NDA from Evergreen Tool Works; document sent for signature…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with a quick update on a situation we’d just reported about in an entry earlier today (“Update: Innovation Direct™ conducts search for initial Innovation Direct To Industry™ package on behalf of Evergreen Tool Works; no inventions matching necessary criteria found at present…“). Late Monday evening, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the Innovation Direct To Industry™ account of Colorado-based Evergreen Tool Works received an e-mail reply from his contact at the company regarding the communication our colleague had sent him earlier in the day. As we’d explained in the aforementioned posting, it had been explained to Evergreen’s representative that at present, there were not any tool or hardware inventions in our database with the sufficient level of intellectual property to send to them for review.
In an unexpected development, Evergreen replied by informing our colleague that they wanted to go ahead and sign a permanent version of our NDA so that we would not have to hold off on sharing new product idea information with them. Our colleague promptly complied with the gentleman’s request and e-mailed a copy of the document to him for signature before the evening was over.
We will continue to provide you with the details of any relevant developments regarding this situation, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Check in often!
