In the ever-evolving and fast-paced world that we all live in, we often come across people and issues that can frustrate us and take a massive toll on our overall wellbeing. The issues could be related to political developments, workplace squabbles or the tiring relationships we deal with. All of this creates negativity around us and the lack of way to express them is even worse.
VentAllOut (VAO), a Delhi-based health-tech platform, is creating a cohesive community of users, experts and facilitators to provide a holistic approach towards the well-being of a person. A vernacular platform created to break the barrier in reaching out to a like-minded community anonymously, it enables users to express themselves candidly on any topic that might be bothering/concerning them.
Sumit Mittal, founder of the app, says that the social media platform aims to provide a podium for people to express their emotions, opinions and sentiments, all anonymously, on a number of topics and interests and promote healthy discussions. “It was created to break the barrier in reaching out to a like-minded community, without the fear of being judged, unlike what happens on other social media platforms where people troll you for your opinions,” he says. Furthermore, it also provides last-mile support.
Users may also reach out to experts on the panel and discuss their issues or problems, and get timely advice.
Mittal points out that it is a platform where users can share their views on various categories such as Politics, Current Affairs, Confession, Entertainment, Daily Drag, Relationship & Grievance. “Be it your pent-up emotion against your boss or your family member or confessing your secret love or having a view on politics (which sometimes makes your friends troll you, in the given political scenario), we cover it all. People can share on this platform without any fear as the identity is not known to other users unless you choose to reveal it,” he says.
VentAllOut is also a platform where you can gain followers and friends who partially or wholly share your point of view. This feature will help in keeping the conversation going between you and platform friends. You will gain VPoints and other exciting and witty VAwards on achievement milestones based on your participation and action on the platform. You can cast your opinion through the VPolls or capture and share a frustrating moment through our VMoments.
VentAllOut is not to boast your fancy trips abroad or your latest accessory but for genuine users who are frustrated with things and want to share with people who can provide a perspective.
The platform is creating a cohesive community of users, experts and facilitators to provide a holistic approach for the well-being of a person. Along with the online platform, the company envisions to create various offline activities as well — events, workshops, contests etc — exclusively to reach out to specific cohorts of users (such as students, professionals and others) for generating and addressing specific issues, such as stress at workplace, parental and peer pressure on students, etc.
