Anitha Beberg CEO Seva Exchange Corp which is an AI and blockchain startup that is reinventing volunteerism. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Anitha spent a decade in Software Project Management and worked in companies such as Siemens, Sun, Cadence, and HP. While taking time off to raise a family, she spent much of her free time volunteering. A few years back, Anitha ended up meeting an inspiring individual who introduced her to timebanking. Where you give an hour of service, get a time credit redeemable for an hour of service for yourself. She joined Timebanks.org, the nonprofit that started the timebanking movement. Seva Exchange was formed after Edgar Cahn, (the creator of timebanking) gave her the title of Senior Timebanking Fellow and asked her to start a for-profit timebanking entity that would also support the nonprofit. Anitha wanted to use her technical background to mainstream timebanking around the world. She understands how blockchain and crypto has been misunderstood and associated with words like “scam, greed, evil” and wants to change that perception by partnering with other Crypto for Good companies.
