Curious About Life in Portland?


You've probably heard about Portland's reputation as a good-looking, vibrant, and liveable small city. Well, all of that is true, but how do you make sure that it's liveable for you?

2 Degrees Portland is connecting people who want to live and work in Portland with those who already do. We're here to help creators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and thinkers meet their peers. Initially, the service is a way to figure out where and how you might fit in. We have people who can speak from experience if you're wondering what it's like to commute from Peaks Island to Portland in the winter, or if there's a freelance community, or a tango scene (The short answers to those questions are: doable, yes, and yes). You'll get good, personal information from great people and maybe make a friend or two in the process.

And whether you're visiting or you're new in town, we hope you'll come to one of our 2 Degrees Portland events. For some people, these events lead to new projects, ideas, and collaborations. For others, they're just a great way to meet a diverse array of people and find out what's going on around town. Let us know if you're coming to an event and we'll look out for you!

For now, please take a few minutes to tell us more about yourself and what you're looking for. Then join us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram
