Our WHY

We are more interconnected than ever before, yet loneliness is a growing problem, which is a huge strain on economic and healthcare bodies.

Televeda's aim is to be the world’s most inclusive community management platform democratizing socialization to people of all backgrounds, abilities and cognitive levels.​

Corporate Values

  • Mission driven, social venture, global community, inclusivity and accessibility.
  • Nobody owns the community except its members. We only provide the tools for management.
  • Work with Experts: We serve community leaders & centers. We fight social isolation best when we empower our civic organizations. Their staff are the real heroes whom we support and learn from.
  • Accessibility is an iterative process that works with ongoing and continual feedback.
  • Passion for Service: We are only as strongest as our weakest links. Services should be accessible to the most vulnerable. No tech support query is left behind.
  • Follow the Money: Ours is a fee based service. We work directly with civic organizations who provide the service free of charge to the seniors as a member benefit. We do not sell data or push advertising to our members.
  • Community First: We don’t care about venture scale, only care about personalized touches and experience.

Easiest way for older adults to make new friends, especially as it gets harder to socialize as we age.

Fearless

As we get older, it gets harder to do the things that were once easy: making friends, using new technology, staying in touch, trying new things.

Easy

Design, operations & processes should be welcoming. The only thing that should be challenging is our vulnerability to grow.

Connections

We are support members to build their own tribes. Some play bingo, some do trivia. But all come together to socialize.

Self-Improvement

We provide a fun & rewarding journey of self-improvement so members can learn new things, see new places & meet new people despite barriers

Our Story

I was very close with my grandfather who suffered from age-related chronic conditions that made him homebound. It was a difficult time, and one that made me come to a stark realization: loneliness and social isolation are massive healthcare problems that need to be addressed.

So, we founded Televeda: a social venture working to prevent social isolation in vulnerable communities. Loneliness is a major predictor of functional decline and death, and bringing individuals together can improve a society’s physical, mental, and social health.

Accessibility is one of the most important problems of our times. I cannot stand to see more people affected by something that is easily preventable. Social isolation is now considered a global epidemic, so we must work together to change the future of our world.
