Vision, Mission, Value

VitaNet’s mission is to make IoT device use more common among young and old people around the globe. This is best achieved by making IoT device safe and easy. Our software pairs state-of-the-art technology with a wide range of knowledge, merging security and usability.

VitaNet was originally founded in Japan as VitaNet KK in 2013. In April 2016, the company became a US corporation under the name VitaNet, Inc., headquartered in the Silicon Valley. The Japan-based operation is now known as VitaNet Japan KK, a 100% subsidiary to VitaNet, Inc.

The name VitaNet comes from the Latin word “vita” which means “life.” This reflects VitaNet’s mission to focus first-and-foremost on users. “Net” represents all the devices that make up today’s hyper-connected world. Our goal is to improve access to the “Net” so people can focus more on how they live. VitaNet’s complete IoT platform solution makes this possible.

Vita + Net = Better quality of life!
