Contact person for a finalist???

I’m a finalist in a sponsored product search. I’m looking to speak with a human by phone. The phone number listed only directs you back to the site. There must be someone who takes the lead and can actually speak to an inventor when at the finalist stage I would think. Can anyone help with this request. My idea is being pitched next week. Thanks Jim.

Hi Jim!

Congratulations on becoming a finalist! 

All communications from the Edison Nation team are directed back to your dashboard digitally. If your idea is a finalist in a sponsored search, you may also receive an email if additional information is required following the presentation.

Best of luck to you!

any chance you could let me know if there will be a contact person I could speak to? Also, do I play any role in the negotiation process if they proceed? Thanks. Jim

Hi Jim!

All communications are done digitally. If there is a deal secured, the Edison Nation team handles all negotiations on our innovators' behalf. 

Thank you!

Thank you. That’s a shame that no human interaction exists within your community, other than digitally. That may just be what this world is missing these days. Thanks anyway. Jim

Michelle, one more question. Your team is pitching my products on Tuesday, but they don’t have any product samples. It says at this stage they will make themselves experts of the subject matter, functionality, use of the products, etc. I just want to be sure the pitch goes well and the products really do speak for themselves when actually seen and I don’t know if your team can really get the point across without actual physical products on hand. Can you expand on this for me? I have products in stock. Thanks. Jim.

Hi Jim!

We do not present prototypes during our sponsored searches. If the sponsor is interested in the item and requests to do additional due diligence on it, a member of the EN team will reach out to you to obtain a prototype.

Thank you and best of luck!

Thank you Michelle. Sorry for my kinda nasty back and forth with you, just nervous I guess. Sincerely, Jim.

No worries at all Jim, it is a very exciting time to be a part of a presentation, and we'll share as many details as possible in the official forum thread for the search as they are available. 

Best of luck to you!
