Jeremy Leffring | Supporting Education from the Factory Floor

August 2, 2023

Our educational system is not simply comprised of children with their teachers and administrators. The whole educational system is supported by the work of people in the for-profit spaces: software engineers, architects, publishers, and furniture designers and manufacturers. In this episode, Kevin Stoller speaks with Fōmcore Founder, Jeremy Leffring. They talk about how a company Fōmcore helps make a difference, their shared mission of improving education, and what a service-guided company behaves.
