Brett Hagler is the CEO and Co-Founder of New Story - an innovative nonprofit that transforms slums into sustainable communities around the world.
Brett is a cancer survivor, author, speaker, Y Combinator alum, and 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur. 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 sustainable communities.
That on-ground experience paired with his background in marketing, sales and formerly a venture-backed ecommerce founder, connected the dots to create New Story. For fun, he oddly enjoys doing burpees early in the morning. Brett writes about entrepreneurship, leadership and New Story's journey at bretthagler.com/blog and on LinkedIn.
