With rural communities struggling to keep up with urban powerhouses of economic activity, domestic outsourcing of business services represents one possible solution. As high-skill job opportunities are distributed beyond the suburbs of technology hubs, rural communities will gain much-needed economic hope and reduce the consequences of brain drain. At the same time, urban centers will find relief from the symptoms of growing population pressures like the California housing crisis and the skills gap in local talent pools. Based on research on startup support policies in Southeast Europe, businesses and governments should focus on enabling, educating, and empowering rural business leaders to encourage more domestic outsourcing in the future.
