Jeff Wilson is a serial entrepreneur in the real estate technology industry based out of Los Angeles and Marfa. He is currently CEO and Cofounder of Jupe, a flat-packed off-grid housing technology company. Formerly, Wilson founded the award-winning micro housing company Kasita, which was named one of Inc’s 25 most disruptive companies in the World (alongside SoFi and Hyperloop). Kasita’s brand/designs/tech sold off in Dec 2018 to a group building a hospitality company.

Dr. Wilson has published over 20 academic papers on environmental and public health subjects including the swine flu pandemic and was named the top assistant professor in the University of Texas System for his teaching. He is also known as ‘Professor Dumpster’. He lived in a 33 sq. ft. modified trash dumpster for a year as part of a minimalist living and housing experiment.  Wilson’s work on startups, sustainability, minimalism, and social experimentation has been featured in ForbesThe Atlantic, NY Times, and The Washington Post. Beyond startups and dumpster diving, Professor Dumpster enjoys traveling – in another experiment he took a woman he met online for a whirlwind date across seven countries in 21 days – with only the clothes on their backs (now a book and soon to be a Hollywood movie). Wilson’s wikipedia page can be found here.
