University Venture Development Fund

Transforming today’s research and development into tomorrow’s businesses

Oregon’s university venture development fund will help transform today’s University of Oregonresearch and development into tomorrow’s businesses, ensuring that new and nascent technologies emerging from university laboratories will have a better chance than ever to become commercially viable.

The idea is simple: the Venture Development Fund provides an unprecedented tax incentive for donors who choose to support commercialization of promising university discoveries and campus-based entrepreneurial education by contributing to university venture development funds at Oregon University System (OUS) campuses and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

Here is additional information on the Fund, including university contacts:

Supporting our universities through gifts to these venture development funds is a way to build vibrant Oregon communities, grow the economy, improve education, and achieve a better future for all Oregonians.
