Dream Big, Start Small

We started as three 20-somethings with no funding and no connections — I was 24 with just $2,000 when I decided to found New Story with my cofounders. Fast forward five years and we’ve built a team of top talent, raised more than $50M, been named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies (2017, 2019, 2020), and most important, created real change for those who need it most.
