Business Impact Group (BIG) was one of the 32 Twin Cities companies selected to compete in the 2017 MATTERbox Madness Challenge that took place on Thursday, March 23rd at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN.

At BIG, we are proud to be a part of team Matter and are thankful for having the opportunity to help them fulfill their mission. We are grateful to have been a part of such a special and impactful event with a record-setting goal to pack 200,000 healthy meals.

The day consisted of 32 Minnesota based companies competing to achieve that goal of Matterboxes that will be provided for thousands of youth and families in the Twin Cities. Our excitement grew once we took the “Wild Card” and 8th spot with the award given to the most animated and excited team; the MATTERbox Madness Spirit Award.

As we entered the championship round, we had the opportunity to team up with Minnesota Timberwolves’ Mascot Crunch, along with each of the Final Four teams battling for the Championship title. We could not have done it without Crunch or our supporting fans to be named the 2017 MATTERbox Madness Champions!


Matter is a movement of people who believe they have the power to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges right in their own two hands. One of the biggest challenges we face today is the lack of access to health. All humankind, regardless of race, income, religion, or sex can have the same access to a healthy life. It is only then that we can create a world where we all matter.
