At Venture Connectors' September lunch, visionary entrepreneur and co-founder of Mighty Small Homes, Cyndi Masters, discussed the economic drivers of the tiny home movement and the long-term impact of this real estate revolution. She shared why tiny homes are here to stay, as well as their impact on homeownership for first-time buyers, seniors, immigrants and refugees. She also discussed opportunities the small home market presents for investors.

Masters has more than 20 years of experience in starting and leading companies. In 2000, she founded DBS Interactive, a full-service digital agency that extends the principles of old-fashioned customer service to high-tech channels. Living by her mantra, "success equals responsibility," she co-founded Mighty Small Homes in 2016 to offer sustainable, strong, energy-efficient and affordable home solutions to underserved populations. Mighty Small Homes provides small and tiny home kits to individuals, developers and realtors.

No stranger to overcoming personal and professional challenges herself, Masters works tirelessly to support individuals who face obstacles in their own lives. She has served as a board member of the Louisville Deaf Community Center, the Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
