Pete Dupuis


World Housing co-founder Peter Dupuis had already earned a worldwide reputation as a real estate entrepreneur and marketer when a chance meeting in 2009 with TOMS Shoes’ founder Blake Mycoskie took his life in a radically different direction. Inspired by Blake’s example and business model, Peter spent three years in a graduate program studying social entrepreneurship, modern philanthropy, slum housing and landfill communities. His work culminated in a successfully defended Masters thesis: “World Housing: A Blueprint for Creating Third World Bottom of the Pyramid Housing Supply Through a First World One-for-One Real Estate Gifting Model.” In 2013, Peter and his business partner of 32 years, Sid Landolt, co-founded World Housing.
