Everyone is a genius!

You just have to find out at what.

Best way to discover is do a project…

What's your DoNew project?

A DoNew project is a real-world ambitious project aligned with your dreams and strengths, completed within 3-6 months. You experience the following three stages in a DoNew project…

Know you

You start with knowing yourself or your mentees - practically, deeply. Dreams, strengths, how you think, feel and act...what will it take for you to do-new.

Move you

Take prototyping steps aligned to dreams. Use innovation patterns to deliver real-world, interim outcomes. Movement brings clarity, movement brings confidence.

Unblock you

Anticipate that your moonshot will be hard, you’ll have obstacles, delays. Unblocking involves a decision tree, utilizing strengths and working smartly around obstacles.


Can AI mentor people?

Can everyone in this world have a mentor? Artificial intelligence can be the answer, says product innovator Rahul Kulkarni as he describes the journey of two ex-Googlers who set out to mentor at scale. With real stories, Rahul describes how they turned a people problem into a data problem, turning mentor-mentee psychology into quantitative signals, and offers an approach of applying AI to mentoring people.

Can we help?

Discover Your Genius

Start a DoNew project - something that will help you use your unique strengths, help you switch or accelerate your career path, or satisfy the urge for doing meaningful work. It starts with having an online “Know You” strengths conversation with a chatbot that creates an AI model of how you think, feel and act… #FindMyVocation

Help Mentor Someone

Learn how to mentor someone you care for - a friend, a colleague, your high schooler child - to get them to do something ambitious! Very often, it’s a rich and fruitful journey for the mentor and builds a great bond. Both mentor and mentee take the “Know You” conversation and the mentor gets personalized “Move You” guidance. #DoNewMentoringProject

Manage Your Team Differently

Wouldn’t it be nice to make a positive impact as a manager both on the project and your team members? Without compromising on one for the other? In other words, to be a really effective and inspiring manager! It starts with having clear Project A-to-B as well as Person A-to-B plans based on strengths, aspirations and business needs.

About us

We were colleagues at Google when we first discovered our shared passion for helping others succeed and go after their dreams and ambitions.

When we looked deep within ourselves, we realized where our own dreams and strengths lay. Vihari quit Google and returned to India, Rahul quit the startup he joined after Google to start prototyping a mentoring method and platform that followed our beliefs and had the potential to scale.

We started DoNew - our own personal DoNew project to believe in and reach out to a million geniuses in India and start a thousand mini-Googles all over the country.
