Sil. is a leading entrepreneurship center in Baku, Azerbaijan founded with ambition to build first unicorn startup born out of Azerbaijan through lifting 50 tech startups annually by 2025.
Our mission is to educate aspiring entrepreneurs and give them access to global opportunities to enable them build globally impactful solutions.
We are a purpose-driven, team-centered organization that respects individuality, demands integrity, encourages innovation, and celebrates success.
We are entrepreneurs, leaders, and self-starters. We try new things, we challenge convention, and we’re not afraid to fail.
We relish the opportunity to apply resourceful and insightful ideas. We are energized by every chance we have to be imaginative.
We learn from each other and we help our colleagues to grow personally and professionally. We are grateful for each other and we respect common rights and values of the individuals we work together with.
We conduct our activities with complete and open transparency through clear channels of communications and openness to strengthen understanding and alignment among our team and stakeholders.
At the core of accountability is reliability and personal responsibility. We take ownership of our work and we value the ability of our team and organization to honor our commitments, to clients and to each other.
We believe in constant and continuous learning. Everyone, from our team and the community are all our mentors and partners in learning.
Flexible and Present
We value results over having people in specific seats at specific times of the day. We recognize that self-directed people can perform at a higher level and simultaneously take better care of their lives when they’re able to design for themselves how, when, and where they work. When appropriate, we choose to come together to work.
We provide fair wages and benefits to our team members and we reward our members as part of the movement who surpass expectations of the team.
Celebration and Fun
We believe that happiness, fun, and general silliness bring with them an energy which fuels creativity and innovation, creates a more open and communicative workplace, and makes for a more productive, more dedicated team. We are grateful for our successes and celebrate them.
