In this edition of Making Oregon, we chat with Justin Yuen, President and founder of FMYI in Portland. FMYI, which stands for “for my innovation”, is a collaboration software company Justin started in 2004, after he finished an 8 year run with Nike in Beaverton, where he was a Senior manager of corporate sustainable development.
We chat about Justin’s early years in New Jersey and how his parents influenced his worth ethic and commitment to family, and his college years where he caught the entrepreneurial bug and indulged his great intellectual curiosity.
We talk about his years at Nike, including his time in the Netherlands and his progression to being one of the leaders of the company’s sustainability efforts.
We find out what sustainability really means to him, and ask him to simplify its definition through the lens of the triple bottom line.
Justin will also chat about FMYI and its genesis, growth, and how it empowers teams to make a difference through its collaborative platform.
