Help Make the "NextDayBetter"
Truly, the renaissance of the Filipino is upon us. There are a lot of Filipinos and Fil-Americans who are putting their stamp on the world everyday, and it was almost as if we could use a forum to put this genius in the same room. The good folks of NextDayBetter and their Chief Builder, Ryan Letada are very passionate about gathering today's most creative and driven people, from small business owners and technology start-ups in particular. And in their first event for 2013, they will do just that. On May 8th, three special guest speakers get to share their stories and ideas, and inspire innovation within that room. Check out the event details below, and get your tickets now!
