There's currently no answer to that question, however one answer many people believe is God. Even Einstein believed that God was responsible for the
Big Bang, however he also didn't believe that black holes existed but he was sadly mistaken. Plus if you believe that God is responsible for the
creation of the universe in a cop-out for science since we don't currently have an explanation, that brings up the next question: What created God?
There's one theory that universes are like soap bubbles, and there are an unfathomable amount of soap bubbles which are constantly budding off of each
other, forming more universes. Another theory is that there's an infinite amount of parallel universes, think of them as paper moving like a wave,
stacked on top of each other. When the waves of two parallel universes bump into each other given the right conditions, that could be the event that
starts Big Bangs and kick-starts universes into existence.
One thing I've always thought about, but probably is completely false, is that black holes might have something to do with Big Bangs. A black hole is
an infinitely massive/dense point which can suck up an infinite amount of mass and not even light can escape it, so what if that material is actually
being sucked through a portal (the black hole) into another universe? Or what if billions of years in the future, a black hole eventually gathers
enough mass that it actually explodes because even it cannot contain that much mass, and that causes a rip in space-time which consequently is the Big
Bang for another universe? Because the singularity which created the Big Bang, an infinitely dense/massive point smaller than an atom, sounds a lot
like a black hole which is also an infinitely dense/massive point, except black holes are way bigger than an atom. Now that I think about it I'm not
100% sure if black holes are infinitely massive, because astronomers tend to refer to black holes as "x amount of solar masses", but still the theory
is there for you guys to think about.
