NextDayBetter is a culture platform that builds and activates diaspora communities to create a better future. We believe that diasporas, like the Philippines global community, are hubs and inspirations for social innovation, incredible design, and world changing ideas.

See how NextDayBetter Angelenos unlock human and community potential through technology, film, entrepreneurship, food, music, art, and design. Come for the inspiration, stay for the food, and hang out for a while.
