Business for a Better Portland: Addressing the housing crisis
TerraMai PDX

Addressing the housing and homelessness crisis is essential to the future success of our city and businesses. With an issue of this scale and complexity, it can be difficult to know how we, as businesses, can engage in solutions.

In partnership with Business for a Better Portland members New Seasons Market and TerraMai PDX, we invite you to join us on Monday, April 17 for an event connecting members and business leaders with change makers working on the frontlines to ensure safe, stable and affordable housing for all.

You’ll have an opportunity to learn from community leaders, provide input on our advocacy, and walk away with a clearer sense of the concrete options for civic engagement. The challenges our city faces call for a new approach to engagement that is collaborative and advances the outcomes that will benefit not only our businesses, but the community as a whole.

We're excited to offer Business for a Better Portland members exclusive, earlybird registration. We look forward to seeing you!

Registration for non-members will be available as space allows starting April 3rd. Not a member yet? Find out more about how to become one.

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.
