Dallas is booming and continues to grow. The city, which has the largest metropolitan area in the South, is expected to have a population of over 10 million people by 2030. The relatively low cost of living and conducting business draws more and more people and businesses to the DFW area. We've also seen a pattern of large companies moving their corporate campuses to Dallas. There is also a large influx of young workers flocking to the area, introducing new and innovative ideas to the market. Dallas is rapidly advancing technologically, transforming the office, retail, and residential markets. So what can we expect to see from developers in the future?

Boom: Bridging the Opportunity Gap to Reignite Startups By: Craig Hall
For decades, the United States has been experiencing a shocking decline in the number of new business startups…and it has gotten worse since the Great Recession. While new business formation in Silicon Valley, New York, and Boston is booming, entrepreneurship in most of the country—particularly rural regions—is declining. Things are even worse for women and people of color. This is of paramount importance to the United States because startups account for all new net job growth, champion innovation and strengthen our middle class.
From the perspective of an entrepreneur with more than fifty years of experience in diverse industries—from software, to real estate, to winemaking—author Craig Hall provides his expert evaluation on the challenges facing entrepreneurs today. After careful analysis defining the current environment for startups, Hall optimistically concludes with specific strategies for go-getters to successfully bridge the opportunity gap. We can, and must, reverse these trends in order to level the playing field for entrepreneurs to safeguard the future of the American Dream.
*All proceeds from the sale of BOOM will go the Bridge the Gap program, through which the Craig and Kathryn Hall Foundation supports innovative programs that serve and fund entrepreneurs who are underserved by today’s capital markets, including women, people of color, veterans, or rural residents.*
