Our mission is to maximize the positive impact of cellular agriculture.
In late 2020, we changed our mission from “build the field of cellular agriculture” to “maximize the positive impact of cellular agriculture on the world.” Read why here.
The ends do not justify the means. Our responsibility as a funder, thought leader, and public voice is to always use our power for good.
It is important to communicate the promise and progress of cellular agriculture to the world—and to differentiate between the two. Data and evidence must guide us towards realizing our vision.
Our work cannot change the world unless we uplift new voices and welcome diverse perspectives to shape the field.
New Harvest fiercely protects our independence as a philanthropically-supported, nonprofit research organization.
New Harvest team members do not sign NDAs or engage in due diligence with investors. New Harvest-supported researchers commit to publishing in open access journals and refraining from entering into business agreements or developing intellectual property—including patents—during the course of their fellowship.
New Harvest does not accept funding that challenges the independence of our organization or the academic freedom of our researchers and fellows.
We pursue a relationship-oriented rather than transactional approach to fundraising and partnership to allow us to remain nimble and independent as we move forward in our work.
