Brett Hagler


New Story

After a life-changing trip to Haiti when he was 24, Brett co-founded New Story to employ new technology and rethink the traditional charity model. When he started the organization, he couldn’t have known it would grow as fast as it has. Through New Story’s innovative approach, Brett’s team has achieved nearly $55M+ in revenue within five years while funding 2,000+ homes for 11,000+ people and broke ground on the world's first 3D printed community in Mexico. Brett’s been recognized on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in 2016, named one of the Top 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs, and his company was named among Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in the World” four times. With a staff of nearly all millennials, Brett showed the corporate and nonprofit worlds that thinking differently can have an exponential impact. Bold risks, like launching a 3D printer for homes for the world’s poor, has proven technology solves real problems and that people with a dream who take action can make a massive impact. He’s brought his story to a variety of organizations, including Architectural Digest, Goldman Sachs, Y Combinator, DocuSign, Q’s Annual Leadership Conference, Plywood Presents and Sotheby’s International Realty. He’s also been featured in NPR, WSJ, Forbes, Huffington Post, the CBS Morning Show, CNBC and more.
