Dr. Valentin Kuleto, president and founder of the company
The entrepreneurial business approach, together with the simplification of complex bureaucratic procedures and the willpower to tackle problems without hesitation, lie at the very heart of LINK group’s business model. Under the leadership of president and founder Dr. Valentin Kuleto, the company has become a leader in modern education, e-learning education and internet business in less than two decades.
Dr. Valentin Kuleto has successfully headed and brought to fruition a large number of education projects.
His work, vision and energy constantly redefine, develop and enhance education in a manner which corresponds with contemporary society and the needs of its citizens.
Sustainable growth through continuous innovation
Ever since the foundation of the company, Valentin Kuleto has been dedicated to innovation and development. This is why LINK group’s employees are constantly focused on enhancing current services and creating new ones, with the aim of improving and elevating the company’s business activities.
“At LINK group we respect the past, while constantly looking to the future.”
Supporting new ideas
There is only one law in the modern age: If you don't progress, you regress. One cannot afford to conform to the status quo, or be satisfied with what one has achieved in education and business, the key areas of modern life. This is why LINK group provides selfless support for new products and creative ideas.
Anyone with a good idea or product can expect our support for the realization of their projects, be they clients, students, employees, or others. Instead of bureaucratic apathy, LINK fosters boldness in experimenting with novelty.
“Facilitating and empowering innovation.”
We create social value
LINK group’s main activities, education and business, are key to any society. It is, therefore, the mission of each employee to contribute to social development, values and progress. By developing experts, connecting companies with employees, various educational and humanitarian projects, the company is dedicated to creating a legacy aimed at altering the future for the better.
“Change requires vision, and the ability to plan and act. Change doesn’t begin in the office, at meetings, or in folders. Change begins in our minds”.
A people-oriented company
A company's value is in its people. Their energy, knowledge and dedication are the key to success. This is why LINK group aims to help people become successful through a developed training network, and numerous support services enabling clients, partners and employees to achieve incredible results.
“Let's bring talented people out of the shadows”.
The reason why we are so good at solving problems is our rule that meetings are attended by those who can help the most, regardless of their position in the hierarchy. Our principle “knowledge over title” is one of the indicators of LINK group’s success.
