Portland Oregon is one of the best places to start a business in the United States
Thanks to a recent article from commercialcafe.com, we know that Portland Oregon is now considered to be one of the best places to start a business in the United States.
Starting a business in 2019 is definitely not an easy task because there are a wide variety of other factors that can play a major role in success or failure of the business including the cost of living in the area where the business is located and also the availability of skilled employees for the business to hire.
Portland ranked #7 on the commercial cafe list because the city recently had the 3rd largest increase in a number of non-employer tech firms nationwide.
Statewide Rent Control Also A Factor In Making Portland An Ideal Place For Start-Ups?
There’s no denying that cost of living is a big issue that entrepreneurs have to deal with in 2019 because, if their employees cannot actually afford to live where the business is located, it’s only going to be harder and more costly for the business owner to keep qualified people living and working in the area.
One of the biggest factors that could be bringing more people to Portland and the state of Oregon as a whole in the coming years could be statewide rent control that the Governor signed earlier this year.
The law, which places an annual limit on rent increases of 7% plus inflation, was signed into effect on Thursday by Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, who signaled that this won’t be the state’s only step towards addressing affordable housing.
“This legislation will provide some immediate relief to Oregonians struggling to keep up with rising rents and a tight rental market,” Brown said in a statement. “But it does not work alone. It will take much more to ensure that every Oregonian, in communities large and small, has access to housing choices that allow them and their families to thrive.”
