GBT Technologies and GTX Corp. Enter into an LOI for Proposed Worldwide Licensing for Manufacturing, Sales, and Distribution
“You can’t rely on them putting something around their neck,” said GTX Corp CEO Patrick Bertagna. “It can stigmatize them, so that’s where the whole wearable concept came about– putting something that’s invisible and can’t be seen. Slip it into their shoes, and every time they walk out of the door they have a tracking device on them.”
GBT Technologies signs Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with GTX Corp., to develop a framework of cooperation between the companies to evaluate the viability and market size of the Company’s Intellectual Property and product line for worldwide exclusive licensing rights to manufacture, sell and distribute their products.
“We believe this proposed relationship with GTX can improve our go-to-market efforts for our IP and products. GTX’s proven extensive Global reach, experience in getting innovative products to market, and understanding of our technology were critical factors in our decision to enter into this agreement,” stated the Company’s Chief Technology Officer, Danny Rittman.
