What we do?

- 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.
on Patents and Freedom of Ideas
Acadinnet is a new company and therefore does not carry past baggage in terms of ideas and experiences better suited to the past. The future is uncharted, and as the current economic meltdown has shown, full of surprises. The core members of Acadinnet's team have passed through the transition period that has led to the present knowledge economy, and along the way seen many old values, ideas and experiences fall by the wayside. The future will present us with many unforeseen opportunities and many of them will require innovative solutions conjured by the talented few. In this we see both a social and a business opportunity.
Business thrives when it fulfills social needs in an equitable manner. Acadinnet is a niche player, hence more agile and adaptive. Its focus is on molding such unpolished talent as can fulfill the innovative needs of society.
If that scarce commodity called talent is what you need, Acadinnet may just be able to find and nurture them for you.
Acadinnet focuses on helping people with untapped talent create new neural connections in their own brains so that they learn the value of introspection and reflection in creative endeavors. Acadinnet succeeds when a mentee is able to reflect and discover that what was learned from his mentors has changed his view of the world and has expanded his own capabilities. The result is a more confident and creative person.
Our focus is on industry
The rush to create knowledge, improve skills and convert them into assets, preferably in the form of patents, is palpably visible in a wide range of industries, especially where a company's competitive success depends heavily on the information and knowledge it possesses, whether it is in the skills of its employees or in the results of its research.
In a world where inventive and artistic creativity is of essence, free-thinking, curiosity-driven individuals are the key to an organization's success because of their ability to do out-of-the-box thinking coupled with an ability to continuously expand the box.
Acadinnet helps organizations identify and nurture such rare free-thinking and curiosity-driven individuals. And through its individual-specific mentoring programs, Acadinnet enhances the ability of these individuals to address complex problems at conceptual levels before delving into problem solving minutiae. The most important part of problem solving is to determine the concepts needed for creating a solution. It is the concepts that lie behind smart thinking and illuminate the paths that may lead to solutions. The aim therefore is to sharpen their abilities of abstract thinking, cultivate lateral thinking, see unity in diversity, and use those abilities to develop products and processes that have commercial value to the organization they belong.
