    Today, I'm talking with Sam Ruben, who is passionate with a capital P, about sustainability. Sustainability is not just a moral principle for Sam. He believes that as a core value, it can improve the bottom line and increase the brand value of any company. And Sam is living this belief. Today he is Chief Sustainability Officer and Co-Founder of Mighty Buildings, a company that offers 100 percent digital prefabrication of its modern ADUs and kits. In the first three years of their existence, Mighty Buildings developed a breakthrough material that can be printed into any shape, a series of ADUs with a growing order list and a house kit of parts. Now deploying a Series B round of funding, the goal is to manufacture thousands of houses through the 3D printing material, in thousands of locations globally within the next 10 years, reducing waste and energy and helping to house people quickly, affordably and beautifully.

    Andrew Luong,CEO and co-founder of Doorvest loves real estate. Growing up in a lower middle-class family, he decided early on that real estate would be his path to financial security. So he started buying and fixing up single family homes in his spare time. While he honed his skills as an entrepreneur in a variety of start-ups, his portfolio grew into the double digits. He had honed his skills as a real estate investor as well. It dawned on Andrew and his co-founder, Justin, that the long laundry list of items that comes with purchasing a property could be deconstructed and rebuilt into a frictionless process to bring real estate investing to everyone. And so Doorvest was launched to provide a turnkey real estate investment service online. You'll want to listen in to learn more.
