Here is some additional information on the three Time Inc. pet product searches:

Coastal Living is all about the salty, beach dog. So for this search, consider inventions that are good for the water, in the car, for the bath after being in the water all day.

Real Simple is looking for simple, solution-oriented pet products that could be marketed and sold within their Real Simple line of products at BBB and Container Store. Real Simple products are smart, simple and have a clean design - how would this relate to pet products?

The search with People magazine can be pet accessories and general pet products.

The best ideas will be presented to BBB and the team at Time.

Waiting on 5 in the Mr. Shiffman presentation, I needed to dig this search up to calm my anticipations... ; )

Think lakes and rivers too!

Nothing like a little vino to spur me on...G1! ;D

I have a few ideas for this search (or maybe it's one of the others - I forget)... just need to do the work on it and get it in.  Time is my enemy!

One idea into Coastal Living and resubmitted to Real Simple search.  Another idea submitted to BB&B's search.  One G3 and two G1s on my dashboard.  Good luck to all!

Hey guys!

GREAT NEWS!

We've extended the deadline for this search to Monday, July 10! The magazine is going to be doing some additional marketing around the search and we want to ensure everyone has enough time to submit!

Happy Inventing!

I'm at G2.  Mine is so simple that I hope it can actually pass the patent test. 

It would have to be a design patent, I presume.

Steven -

This will be a two part process. We are posting a pre-screen meeting that will be taking place today with two leads from BBB in the branding and product development dept, as well as lead Time representative.

After this meeting there will be another presentation that will take place within the next couple of weeks with the merchants from BBB and any additional Time Inc,. representatives that are deemed necessary.

During today's pre-screen we will be going through the presentation as well as some other discussions around marketing and content creation efforts for Time Inc. and the various brands that could lead to development of marketing for the products, storylines behind the development of the ideas, etc.

Hi guys and Happy Friday!

We had a follow up meeting with Bed Bath & Beyond this morning following the initial presentation. They have identified the list of their "Top 5" products they want to investigate further. Within this list there are three products in an "A" tier (high interest), one product in a "B" tier and one product in a "C" tier.

They are interested in all five, and we'll be reaching out to those five innovators for sample requests, additional information, etc. over the next few days.

We are also going to be have a follow up meeting with the Time team for any concepts they may be interested in outside of the Bed Bath & Beyond "Top 5." Once we have that discussion, we'll be updating dashboards - this will likely happen next week.

Thank you to all for your ongoing patience!
