Our two cents’ worth is priceless


This service is for you if you need help outside of just making cells. You might be an industry newcomer seeking to understand how things work around here, or an established company looking for in-depth reports or a long-term research partner.

Polaris has been in the cell business for over a decade, so we know a thing or two about this industry.

Our technical expertise and business insights will help you either find your feet or stand your ground in the world of batteries.

When we consult with you, we share the knowledge we’ve gained from prototyping and testing thousands of cells over the years. There are a lot of pitfalls on the road to building successful cells and a thriving business. Let us help you steer around them.

We offer Business Consulting and Technical Consulting.

Examples of Business Consulting:

  • Investment Guidance

    We identify the best companies for you to invest in. This may include autopsying, cycling cells, and reviewing where companies are in terms of development.

  • Startup Guidance

    We help you prepare for investor discussions about your new business. We can also help you figure out the next steps in your startup journey.

  • Newcomer Guidance

    We educate you about the world of cells and give you a thorough understanding of how the industry works so you can navigate it with ease.

Examples of Technical Consulting:

  • Cell Modeling

    This includes us doing calculations for you and advising you on cell design.

  • Formal Reports

    These are deep-dive reports that provide more background and are intended for publishing.

  • Literature Searches

    These are often included as an add-on in projects, but we can also provide them separately.

  • Research Contracts

    These typically last 6 months and include cell builds plus extensive input from our scientists.
