Tyrone Poole, Founder of OneApp Oregon, On Entrepreneurship - Presented by The Urban League of Portland Young Professionals
Residence Inn by Marriott Portland Downtown

During this Leadership Narrative lunch and learn, Tyrone Poole (founder of One App Rentals) will talk about what it truly takes to win as an entrepreneur and how failing is a part of the journey. This is a great opportunity to meet with and learn from one of Portland's shining stars. Seating is limited so register now and reserve your spot!

ABOUT ONEAPP OREGON OneApp Oregon was started out of necessity. Tyrone Poole, Founder and CEO, was training to become a firefighter when he suffered a gruesome injury that hospitalized him. With no insurance or income, Tyrone's bills piled up and by the time he was released from the hospital he was broke and homeless. Tyrone took shelter in the YWCA, where he made it his mission to help people find housing. In his time helping people, one thing became very clear: application fees and the uncertainty of applying to properties were crippling. Application fees can cost upwards of $50, and there's no way for an applicant to know whether they meet the property's criteria. From this realization, an idea was born: one application, one application fee, transparency to all properties. OneApp Oregon was born.
