I have been seeing so many comments and questions regarding who has or has not received further information about the show so I thought I would dedicate this blog post to the ladies who would like to share whatever information they feel comfortable sharing about Women Inventor.
If you would like to share if/when you were contacted from Milojo/Discovery, what was said or written to you about your invention, if you are signing the contract, etc., I'm sure we'd all be happy to support you in any way we can!
On a side note,
I am honored that a few Women Inventors have shared their stories with me (via phone) about being contacted by the show, what was said, what contracts they were given and what they plan on doing going forward. They have trusted me not to reveal who they are and I think that is a good testament to how we all are looking out for each other!
After a phone "interview" today with a Women Inventor that auditioned for the show, I was given permission to say that she is NOT signing the contract that was given to her by Milojo/Discovery.
From what I understand from what she and another W.I (Women Inventor)has told me, the contract is very vague and does not state what percentage of sales you will receive.
Also, Discovery wants the W.I to sign a contract saying they "own" your invention for a period of 7 years. During that time, if you have your product for sale somewhere else, ie: online, you must stop selling from the time you sign the contract.
Although the show stated that you did not have to have a "shelf ready" product, it appears that shelf ready products are the ones that have been selected.
If you are reading this and you HAVE been given a contract without having a "shelf ready" product, let us know!You can always remain anonymous.
If you have been contacted asking from more info and are still waiting, let us wait with you! Fill us in and let us be your cheerleaders!
I will leave it open to you now... so ladies... Do tell!
