Hi Kristina,

I'm a little confused about what they're looking for.... Are they looking for cleaning, waste, storage or organization products or are they specifically looking for either cleaning&waste and/or storage&organization products. For example; would a simple and innovative item used to clean dishes and kitchen surfaces be viable?

Usually we are able to look at the sponsor's site for similar products or a feel for what they offer which makes it a bit easier.

Thanks,

Hi KJ!

Yes, you are on the right track! Anything used to help with cleaning and more in and around the kitchen is acceptable for this search.  

Think of innovation around these points:

  • Simplifying basic tasks
  • Tie-in smart home ideas
  • Smart technology for food and beverage prep
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Simple to assemble products

Hope that helps!

Hello everyone,   I have a great idea and I am stuck on the Submit Attachments. I made a video MP4 and it will not upload to the submission. Any suggestions? Thank You in advance.

Hi Nicole,

In general, the maximum file size for each attachment is 100MB. If your attachment exceeds this size, you can do one of the following:

  • Zip/compress the file
  • If it is a video, upload to a private/password link on YouTube or Vimeo and provide that URL and password in your submission form

Best of luck!

Hi Kristina,

Can we get a summary of how the meeting went yesterday.  Thanks! Ken

Hi KJ, 

As the presentation was yesterday, the partner has between 45 days and 6 months to decide which ideas they'd like to move forward on.

The EN Team works very hard to move this along as quickly as we can, and we will update this forum thread with information as soon as details are made available! 

Best of luck!

Kristina

Ken - good meeting, had their US and international teams on joint video call. There are definitely some items of interest, that we will know more about when they come back with recap as they wanted to have a few days to mull over and discuss internally (and some of their team traveling back to US).

Had a total of 20 concepts that were presented to them as part of the search, as we were able to narrow down somewhat based upon on-going relationship with them, and discussions that highlighted categories that seem to be drawing most potential interest with their retail partners.

Fingers crossed on this, but think there were some items that also when viewed as a more global picture, could be the nice beginning of cleaning categories for them to expand into as well.

Hi Scott.

Any news on their timing to determine if there is at least a preliminary interest? If any of our items are no longer under consideration can you R8 us so we can see feedback and move on ( or at least me :-)  )?

BTW - I'm not rushing for a decision if they have potential interest, I just want to know if they have decided to pass on my item so I can know whether to try pursuing any other possible options.

Thanks! Ken

Hi Kristina,

Can you please provide an update on the status of this search (next milestones). Please see my previous posting addressed to Scott above.  Thanks!

Ken - The sponsor is working through the remaining items and their team continues to be very thoughtful in decisions they are making. Ideas that are still under consideration are still GREEN and when they make any decisions that impact that status we will update accordingly.
