Brett Hagler is a Y Combinator alum, 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur, DRK Entrepreneur, author, speaker and cancer survivor. After reviving a lost Christian faith, Brett took a trip to Haiti and met families living in the type of slums that New Story is now on a mission to transform into thriving communities. That on-ground experience, paired with his background in marketing, sales and formerly as a venture-backed ecommerce founder, connected the dots to create New Story. Brett writes about entrepreneurship, leadership and New Story's journey at www.bretthagler.com/blog and on LinkedIn.
New Story pioneers solutions to design and build human-centered communities around the world. Since starting about four years ago, we’ve raised over $20M, and have funded 2,000+ homes in 16 communities around the world. Our journey has taken us from Y Combinator to being named one of Fast Company’s 2017 Most Innovative Companies In The World and to creating the developing world’s first ever 3D home printer. We're now actively working to democratize our innovations to the global social housing sector.
