After a life-changing trip to Haiti when he was 24, he 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 grown as fast as it has. Through New Story’s innovative approach, Brett’s team has achieved nearly $20M in revenue within 3.5 years while building 1800+ homes for 10,000+ people. Brett’s been recognized on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in 2016 and his company was named among Fast Company’s 2017 “Most Innovative Companies in the World.”
With a staff of all millenials, he 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 young dreamers who take action can make a massive impact.
He’s brought his story to a variety of organizations, including Architectural Digest, Y Combinator, DocuSign, Q’s Annual Church and Leadership Conference, and Sotheby’s International Realty. He’s also been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post, the CBS Morning Show, CNBC, and more.
The status quo holds companies back from realizing their full potential and the impact they can have on social needs. Brett challenges audiences to throw the status quo out the window and embrace new ideas, methods, and technology.
He co-founded a company called New Story dedicated to building communities throughout the developing world with breakthrough solutions such as 3D-printed homes. By sharing his story, he hopes to inspire others to think outside of the box to impact more lives.
