Welcome to 2 Degrees Portland

Part of Portland's allure is that people are connected by much less than "six degrees of separation." Here, we think it's two.

2 Degrees Portland is a network of people who want to sustain and grow the city's economy by welcoming creators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and thinkers to the area — a sort of 21st century welcome wagon.

We're here to connect you to the people you want to meet. If you're interested in moving yourself, your family, or your business to Portland, fill out this short form and you'll hear back from Sarah Delisle, our 2 Degrees Portland community manager in less than 48 hours. 

If you live and/or work in the Portland area and would like to be a Connector for 2 Degrees, fill out this short form and tell us about yourself, what you enjoy talking about, and the type of people you'd most like to meet.

What's in it for you? 2 Degrees Portland holds informal gatherings every other month, so that we can break out of our domain silos and get to know the diverse array of people who make Portland a great place to live and work. While we have a good time, we also strengthen our creative community and help newcomers tap into our growing network of talented, motivated people.

Since our conception of the Creative Economy includes everyone from marine scientists to photographers, web designers to biotech PhDs, and ballet dancers to civil engineers, you won't meet the same people you usually do. 2 Degrees is a place for cross-pollination of ideas, as well as a way to build the critical mass we need to thrive. Please join us.
