Geniuses of


At InBestThing our vision is to be the Geniuses of Innovation, investing in the Next Best Thing that will transform existing markets and create disruptive innovation.

A country with a population of 105 million people and a highly educated median age of 23, the Philippines is an idea pit ready for mining.
