If social innovation and North Texas are a passion of yours, then you won't want to miss this experience! Dallas Social Venture Partners and The Dallas Foundation present the bigBANG! An event that will "spark social innovation" and create a lasting effect in our community.
Participants will experience high energy activities alongside thoughtful programs that will expose some of the most exciting innovations in North Texas. We seek to convene the community of impact investors: donors, foundation leaders, corporate philanthropists, and social entrepreneurs. Join us for the bigBANG!
A sampling of activities include:
-Social Innovation Fast Pitch - a venture capital "pitch" format featuring nonprofits and for profits creating a social and environmental value (learn more by listening to a podcast, or reviewing a past post)
-Spark Lounge - experience the latest in web-based tools for "good"
-Socially Conscious Marketplace - a gathering of products and services that measure more than just profits
-Speed Networking - a way to learn "who's who of who-ville"
Our event will be held in the Grand Hall of Union Station. We plan to grow the food for the event (more on that in a future blog post!) We hope to attract funders and practitioners alike to explore what is working, what is not, and what are the really BIG ideas for improving our world and community.
Sponsorships are Available.
