Rentec Direct is honored to announce its participation in the 2020 Invent Oregon Collegiate Challenge, a competition for college and university students with ideas for inventions to address today’s most pressing problems. The highly rated property management software company is a proud sponsor of the Invent Oregon State Finals, and Rentec Direct President Nathan Miller will also sit on the judging committee for the event.
“Creating efficient and effective solutions for common problems is the heart of Rentec Direct’s mission as a company, so it was a natural decision for us to support the Invent Oregon Collegiate Challenge,” said Miller. “I am honored to be a part of an event that will challenge and inspire the next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs right here in our home state of Oregon.”
The Invent Oregon Collegiate Challenge is a competition that empowers college-level students through mentorship and education to see themselves as innovators. Participants receive up to $2,500 in development grants to take their inventions from an idea to a working prototype while learning about the process of commercialization.
At the Invent Oregon Collegiate Challenge state finals, participants will present their invention to the judging committee and compete for $30,000 in cash prizes. The independent committee of judges includes individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience in business and technology, and teams will be judged based on their physical prototype as well as a three-minute pitch.
Rentec Direct is a cloud-based software platform designed to create efficiencies for landlords and property managers. As an internet-based organization, Rentec Direct hopes to encourage future technology influencers who understand the vital role technology plays in our future. Each year, Rentec Direct offers a Tech Mastery Scholarship program to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing academic achievement in the technology space.
The 2020 Invent Oregon state finals will take place on Friday, September 18 via a virtual live stream event. To learn more, visit: https://www.inventoregon.org/.
