Who We Are
PeopleShores is a for-profit social enterprise that brings technology-driven jobs to the “shores” of economically challenged communities in the United States.
PeopleShores’ purpose is to make a difference that matters, in underserved communities in the US, by building a world-class technology and technology -enabled services business. It is particularly focused on improving the lives of socially and economically challenged individuals by enabling ‘family sustainable’ careers for them.
This purpose is accomplished by implementing PeopleShores’ differentiated social impact sourcing operating model, that works with a 5 million strong pool of untapped and mostly overlooked talent in the US, which, with the right training and support, enables PeopleShores to be a catalyst for change and a market leader in those areas it chooses to provide services.
Our business model is rooted in an idea that was pioneered by PeopleShores founder, Murali Vullaganti, and his team at RuralShores in India 14 years ago. Today, RuralShores employs approximatley 3500 rural youth in 14 centers across 8 states. With PeopleShores, we are adapting this proven business model for American markets, leveraging the knowledge and experience of tech-sector visionaries while realizing the untapped potential of unemployed and underemployed Americans.
We are united, as a company, in operating PeopleShores in a way that provides high-value business services to companies , but also positively impacts human lives and communities, as well. PeopleShores is a US-based company that is totally focused on rural communities and inner-cities across America.
