Announcing our bold, new campaign: "Cellular Agriculture for the Public Good."

Need Technical Expertise in Cellular Agriculture? Try our Expert Network

New Harvest’s research community has a wealth of expert knowledge and New Harvest Fellows are often regarded as some of the leading experts in the field. We’ve been asked to get into the consulting business for years.

Today, we’re making our expert research community available to you.

We are no longer accepting requests for the Expert Network.

Thank you to everyone who helped us test out this idea throughout the pilot! 


For years we’ve been asked to get into the consulting business.

We didn’t because we felt it could compromise our mission and vision. We felt that entering NDAs and other agreements with companies and investors which prevent the flow of information would impair our ability to advance cellular agriculture as a whole.

However, as the field has grown, the need for independent, technical expertise is more important than ever for our shared progress. Having access to a technical expert who can walk you through the science and field your questions can help with anyone’s journey in cellular agriculture.

New Harvest’s research community has a wealth of expert knowledge and New Harvest Fellows are often regarded as some of the leading experts in the field.

We want to make this expert knowledge available to you.

Therefore, we are announcing The New Harvest Expert Network – a network of cellular agriculture experts (aka: the fellows!) who are available to provide expert advice and information for a variety of clients.

How it works:

We will be running this pilot over the next couple of months to see how it goes.

As we aim for integrity and transparency in everything we do, the pilot phase will start with these services and fees, all in US dollars. These prices are a starting point and will vary based on the specific request.

  • Individual informational meetings: $350/hr
  • Group information meeting or FAQ: $500/hr
  • Retainer for ad-hoc advice through email and phone calls: $1,200/month for 4 hours/month
  • Development and presentation of educational seminars: $4,000 for a 2 hour informational presentation

Here’s how we keep our mission and vision central: The Expert Network is intended for informational services to support the cellular agriculture industry; services requested cannot require the expert to sign an NDA or similar confidentiality agreement.

Interested? Complete this service request form.

The service request form will provide New Harvest with the information we need to match you with one of our experts based on their area of expertise.

New Harvest will receive a portion of the fee, which will help us to further support our research fellows and the critical work they do for the field.
