Brett Hagler

CEO/Founder

San Francisco

Brett Hagler is the CEO and Co-Founder of New Story — an organization that crowdfunds life-saving homes and 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.

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.
