bigBANG! is Dallas’ longest-running event for social innovation, focused on driving deeper conversations and innovative solutions for positive change in our city. In 2018, we will look at the economic boom for Dallas-area and how – or if – the gains within the historically marginalized communities are being addressed. There are two economic factors critical to each person having their chance: resilience, or the ability to withstand a shock or unexpected challenge; and economic mobility, or an equitable and open opportunity to rise.

Through intentional social impact and brave development strategies, we have the opportunity to build resilience and economic mobility throughout our community. Our prosperity is enough for every resident to have a place.

Investing has long been a catalyst of innovation and wealth creation. Impact investing can harness market forces to reshape our cities, communities, and social structures for the better. While impact investing has been growing on the coasts for the last three decades, the central U.S. has lacked a hub for capital innovation. We believe Dallas has the resources, talent, and spirit necessary to become a national leader in for-profit, for-good economics. bigBANG! 2018 is dedicated to catalyzing that growth.
