"Brett Hagler was on a trip to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake where he saw too many of those displaced by the natural disaster still living in tattered blue-tarp shelters. What struck Hagler was the need for more permanent housing that could not only offer much needed safety for families, but help foster the community that was split apart following the earthquake. The non-profit startup NewStory is Hagler’s answer to that need. Hagler joins this segment of the a16z Podcast, along with NewStory co-founder Alexandria Lafci, to discuss the startup’s social-media powered approach to giving, and why even as a non-profit startup they think and act like any other for-profit tech startup looking to make a mark."
