Our goal is to create a model for invention-driven economic development that can be adapted by regions across the U.S.
We work with partners to create opportunity for inventors and invention-based start-ups that is equitable, inclusive and readily accessible to students irrespective of gender, background or geography.
We fund programs that contribute to a robust and integrated invention ecosystem in Oregon. This includes invention education from elementary through secondary to higher education, and a strong network of invention-focused entrepreneurship resources. Our vision is a proliferation of invention-based businesses to create a virtuous cycle that sustains regional economic growth and the ecosystem itself. Our work in Oregon provides opportunities to share our findings more broadly with economic development stakeholders and learn from others.
