Hereshore—A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats 


Lee Farabaugh, president and co-founder of Core10, talks about her innovative and unique Hereshore model of economic development. Instead of going offshore to outsource talent, Lee recommends outsourcing technology product development to smaller cities in the United States. 

She explains how training programs and jobs in these smaller communities allow companies to build local economies, provide training and good-paying jobs, and allow workers to stay in their own communities while contributing to the local economy. 

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
