#87 - Impact entrepreneurship on the blockchain: Brett Hagler, New Story

Listen On

By 2030, the UN predicts that 3 billion people will be living without shelter. Today's guest is doing something to combat that.

Brett Hagler is a Y Combinator graduate, a published author and cancer survivor, but you may know him best for his non-profit New Story and for his impactful key note speaking.

Brett started New Story at 25 years old. In the years since they have funded over 2,300 homes, built 16 communities and raised over $25M, so it's no wonder they were named one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies in the World four different times.

Having been featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30 and named one of the Top 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs, Brett is passionate about speaking on leadership and social entrepreneurship.

Today, Brett and I are talking about:

  • Building a venture-backed non-profit
  • Incorporating startup principles in impact entrepreneurship
  • And taking innovation to those who need it
