Innovation Direct™ to Launch Marketing Campaign for Bucket Funnel Invention to Potential Licensees

Miami, FL, April 11, 2012 --( An innovative new product designed to greatly simplify a common construction task, the Bucket Funnel, has been developed by Mike and Caterina Marino of Pueblo, Colorado. The invention's unique design allows its users to eliminate the stress, hassle, and clean up normally associated with pouring drywall compound and other materials into a round bucket.

Drywall and other unwieldy substances, such as mud, often must be inserted into a bucket during construction projects. This becomes especially challenging given the fact that drywall typically comes packaged in a square box, making it an unnatural fit with the round mouth of a bucket. The result is often a time consuming mess to clean up and an untidy job site, both of which significantly affect productivity.

The Bucket Funnel will provide its users with a reliable and effective method of pouring items into a bucket without a mess. It will be made from durable plastic, making it a wise long-term investment. Additionally, the Bucket Funnel , through its proprietary features, will provide a convenient method of cleaning out tools used in the process, saving users additional time and effort. Furthermore, the Bucket Funnel will be easily adaptable and installable on virtually any bucket.

The inventor has also developed a working prototype of the Bucket Funnel that he has utilized with considerable success, and that is available for review under the appropriate terms and conditions of confidentiality.

Mr. and Mrs. Marino now seek a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for them under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the construction accessories industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize Bucket Funnel on a worldwide basis.

In February 2012, Mr. and Mrs. Marino contracted Miami, Florida-based product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Bucket Funnel to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year. Exhibits that Innovation Direct™ has attended in recent years include the SHOT Show, the International Home and Housewares Show, the National Hardware Show, Licensing International, the SEMA and AAPEX Shows and the ERA D2C Convention.
