The 360 View – June 2023
Lots to write about and lots to keep busy people happily busy! We are excited to share all that has been happening here at Jupiter. It has been a busy quarter and we are looking forward to this season being even busier than before.
First things first! Jupiter 360 is proud to partner with a global organization that is doing phenomenal work for mitigating climate change and promoting biodiversity. ATREE; The Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment was founded by Kamal Bawa. Kamal is an evolutionary ecologist, conservation biologist and a distinguished professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. In 2012, Bawa received the first Gunnerus Sustainability Award, the world’s major international award for work on sustainability. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was elected a Member of the American Philosophical Society in 2019.
The ATREE Board, composed of the who’s who in Indian philanthropy is taking the organization to new heights by raising awareness for the work it does in India and now in the US. ATREE is an accelerator partner with us and we can’t be happier working with Kamal and the ATREE India team in Bangalore. Find out more at: www.Atree.org
As always, we are in the midst of bringing technological changes to the nonprofits we work with. New websites, pitch videos, presentations, CRM development, data analytics, fundraising insights, narratives and storytelling are some of our niche areas of expertise in building a brand in the US for our partners. Check out the latest videos we made for Ekal and SRLC.
A mention for SRLC cannot go without a short brief on my March visit to Dharampur to witness the programs this organization is integrating in 225 villages. Telemedicine, a medical van making the rounds with physicians on board, digital education, a world class hospital with a neonatal unit, maternal care, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services for children born with low birth weights, an animal care program pilot that is now expanding to a full fledged animal hospital are just some of the things SRLC has undertaken. I see this as a 100 year vision, to build schools, colleges, institutions in the immediate vicinity of the most marginalized communities in India. Kudos to the founder, Rakeshbhai for his vision and perseverance. Here are some of the field pictures and videos of my visit.
After a 3 year break, a trip to the East Coast was memorable. SRLC hosted an event in Long Island, hitting all measures of success with attendees, fundraising, quality of the program, pitch presentation and follow up after the event. Made me so happy to see the volunteers giving their very best and owning their success! Shoutout to Mitesh, Chintan, Ushma, Amit, Hardik, Darshan, Shreyansh, Krish, Ketan, Alpa and so many more. You rock! www.srlc-usa.org
Jupiter 360 was thrilled to co-host the Ekal Bay Area invitees only event with three Forbes 30 under 30 as our speakers. Arun Saigal, Sampriti Bhattacharyya and Komal Ahmad are true pioneers in the field of no-code, robotics and AI, achieving resounding success from startup to second rounds of funding. Made us so proud to listen to our first gens making a difference!
Please mark your calendars for the next Founders Forum August 24th at 8 am PT / 11 am ET / 8.30 pm IST! We will feature Kamal Bawa, and SRLC’s team in a very different kind of panel discussion. The last one brought a lot of positive feedback, our speakers were happy with the loads of questions and the audience was happy to learn about our NGO partners and the work they do.
