Each year, the SMU Dallas 100 celebrates what’s so unique about the city we call home. Larger-than-life passion, energy, and companies literally shaping the way the rest of the world does business – it’s all right here in Big D. And it’s time to begin the search for the next 100 companies, which will make up the 31st Dallas 100 class. Already thinking of a company that fits the bill of being one of Dallas’s 100 most influential? Tune in live on May 11, when community sponsor MarketScale will host a nomination stream that will allow you to share those companies via phone or live chat. The Dallas 100 is about more than the companies who earn its distinction. It’s an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate those who help make us the greatest city in the world for business and beyond. We’ll see you May 11!
