Business thrives when Portland thrives.

Business for a Better Portland (formerly PICOC, the Portland Independent Chamber of Commerce) makes a positive difference in the city we love by combining the strength of business advocacy with the power of technology and grassroots social change. Our goal is to ensure Portland is an equitable city where prosperity can be shared by all.  We believe that better businesses will be built as we build a better Portland. 

“Working with solutions-oriented business organizations like Business for a Better Portland allows us to move toward creating the prosperous and equitable city we all want.”
