Mission and Values
the founder and leader of Sinet
Our main mission is to serve for the happiness and well-being of people. This is followed by our main objectives:
- To create and maintain high-quality services that deliver benefits. Our services help millions of people to save money and time, receive important information and new skills, make new friends and create families, to develop business and find work.
- Freedom of speech on the Internet is important for us as a sign of the development of civil society. We maintain Ykt.Ru as a leading independent media in Yakutia.
- We contribute to the establishment of a major IT-industry in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), producing competitive products in domestic and world markets. We believe it will improve the regional economy, social life and mentality of the people and create a safe environment for development, complementing a raw model.
- We are engaged in social activities by means of organizing and participating in fundraising for the needy, environmental actions and to support scientific research.
To achieve these goals we develop all of our business projects, support the Development Centre "Smart" and the project Begin.Ykt.Ru involving children of the socially disadvantaged groups into the IT sector, participate in the work of the Association of IT-industry of Yakutia, support the arts through the Community ArtWall. We created the first private venture fund Nord Venture to support IT-startups. In 2007 Sinet helped the Yakutsk State University to win the federal competition and obtain the status of the innovative university. Thus NEFU (ex. YSU) received the status of one of the eight federal universities. That gave tremendous impetus to the higher education system of Yakutia.
In the future our company intends to create a corporate venture capital fund to support new start-ups in Yakutia, a research fund, a center for contemporary art, film and animation, and a charitable fund.
