“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

More About Shruti Gurudanti:
Televëda is a social venture with a mission to combat social isolation for older adults and adults with special needs. We are a virtual community management platform that empowers local civic communities (like senior centers, municipalities and assisted living facilities) with the infrastructure and media needed to manage and scale engaging virtual community centers. Delivering virtual activities to older adults is a fragmented offering that involves a lot of complex steps. Organizations and caregivers rely on televëda to save time and offer peace of mind, instead of piecemealing various software and media solutions. Due to the outbreak, the organizations that serve the vulnerable are severely overwhelmed.
A recent time audit at municipality recreational centers revealed that even with using Zoom and their own instructors it was still costing organizations around 25-40 hours of additional staff time weekly and $5000 in additional monthly spend. televëda is the only end-to-end turnkey platform for civic organizations that includes video streaming, calendaring and registration system, plug-and-play media library, live tech support, automated reminder system, custom data reporting, analytics and security and privacy moderation. televëda has helped frontline workers save 6-15 hours every week while increasing overall attendance and engagement of their online classes.
