Dara is a mobile app platform that keeps the changemaker community connected. She is a powerful, human way for alumni networks to remain alive and engaged.
Archana Prasad - an artist - and Sean Blagsvedt - a social entrepreneur - founded Dara on the belief that collaborations among changemakers in different fields create an open and optimistic future. They found Dev Aggrawal - an engineer - and built Dara to foster dialog among alumni networks, incredible people and institutions across expertise and geographic divides.
Dara believes a lot can happen through conversation. She is the way forward for organisations and institutions to enable their carefully curated networks to stay in touch with each other. Dara is fast becoming the most authoritative, carefully curated and valuable directories of change makers in the world.
Dara is available to mobile IOS, Android and on web browsers. She catalyzes authentic, face-to-face video-first communications and is currently available in English & German. Dara was supported by a grant from the British Council’s Open Call for Digital Arts program which strives to facilitate innovative cultural and artistic connections between the UK and India using digital technology.
