Invent Oregon is an exciting competition for college and university students with ideas for inventions to address today’s most pressing problems. Through the Invent Oregon program, students are empowered through mentorship and education to see themselves as innovators. They receive up to $2,500 in development grants to take their invention from an idea to a working prototype while learning about the process of commercialization. At the Invent Oregon Collegiate Challenge finals, students present their invention and compete for $30,000 in cash prizes. Check out the 2023 InventOR Finals to get inspired and see who wins!
