What we do?
- We help people act with insight.
- We help companies grow from the inside.
- We help employees turn into thinkers.
We ignite thought
If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.

Acadinnet's core business is in the high-end of education (not rote education but insight-based education and mentoring) and the insightful application of scientific knowledge to industrial applications. We help people move away from the awe of ignorance (as in rote education) to the awe of understanding (as in the bleeding edge of science).
Acadinnet aims to market India's potential; not what it is but what it can be – a global supplier and attractor of scientific and technical talent. We help organizations find and nurture talent for the global knowledge economy. Our services range from finding people of raw talent, mentoring them, and helping them into becoming innovators. We focus on helping top raw talent realize their potential in dealing with unsolved problems that involve knowledge from multiple disciplines, and when the occasion demands, in protecting the intellectual property rights of their solutions.
We therefore aim to identify young people with the ambition of becoming the Faradays and Maxwells or the Cricks and Watsons of tomorrow and mentor them to become world-class innovators.
A unique component of our insight-based education and mentoring service is to provide mentees with insights in multiple areas of science and mathematics through the Insights in Science lecture series.
