InventOR encourages college students to invent products and found businesses
Horan Mediatech Advisors (HMTA) is pleased to announce that we have extended our sponsorship of InventOregon for another three years. InventOR is a statewide competition for student inventors at Oregon’s colleges and universities. We believe that this program is a tremendous example of how to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship across communities and types of businesses.
“Supporting the next generation of Oregon College innovators and entrepreneurs requires all hands on deck from government, philanthropic and private stakeholders; we are grateful to Horan MediaTech for their continuous commitment to College Innovators across our state; their contribution and support is creating new opportunities for Oregonians and fueling our next wave of economic growth” said Juan Barraza, Director of Student Innovation at the Center for Entrepreneurship at Portland State University.
InventOregon was started in 2017 by the Center for Entrepreneurship at Portland State University. In 2022, more than 20 colleges and universities around the state of Oregon are participating. InventOregon encourages students to create a “new, innovative, and tangible product, process, or service that affects the communities and environment in a positive way including in areas of energy, food, transportation, housing, and health. The innovations can be consumer products, industrial, commercial, municipal processes or technologies, micro products, and nanotechnology or anything that solves a community problem around the planet.”
“We are thrilled to be part of the community that is supporting InventOR,” said Peter Horan, founder at HMTA.”We believe that this program will encourage students from all backgrounds, in all areas of the economy, in all parts of the state to create exciting new businesses. InventOR helps to open the door to the American dream to more students. “
Founded in 2014 by Peter and Pam Horan, Horan Mediatech Advisors is an investment and consulting group based in Oregon.
