Our mission is to make plant science innovation faster and simpler.

Global challenges in climate, nutrition, and sustainability require the development of new plant varieties. Solis is a one-of-a kind company providing product design and R&D services to help plant science companies and researchers accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and commercialization.

Solis was founded by experienced agriculture & biotechnology executives and entrepreneurs. Our scientists are highly skilled professionals with multiple years of industry experience.

We seek to create and provide new tools & services, so that every emerging Agtech startup can access the corporate-like capabilities needed to advance their research to commercialization and reach their goals faster.

By leveraging our state-of-the-art technology, tools, and infrastructure, and using our expert talent, companies can reduce their product development times (in many cases from years to months) and obtain a real competitive advantage in a fast-paced biotech environment.

Most importantly, our clients do not relinquish any intellectual property rights since we have a simple, fee-for-service model.

At Solis, our goal is to streamline plant science/agtech innovation making it faster, better and more capital-efficient.

Our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss how our services can help accelerate your research.
