Frequently Asked Questions

ScholarTribe is the freelance marketplace to hire climate-related academics. Through our marketplace, we connect our clients with climate-related academics to work on freelance projects.

Clients post their project on the marketplace. For more complex projects, a short call may be needed with the ScholarTribe team. Clients are presented with a vetted list of academics, from which they decide which academic(s) to work with. We offer the option of a short intro call with the academic to ensure compatibility. Once the project scope, timeline and budget have been agreed, the academic will complete the project.

ScholarTribe’s clients are broad, spanning industries and geographies. To give some examples, we've worked with venture capital investors from Chicago (US) and Sydney (Australia), consumer brands from London (UK) and Munich (Germany), and consultants from Bristol (UK) and Amsterdam (Netherlands).

ScholarTribe’s academics come from across the world, but are united by the fact that they have all carried out great research in highly specialised disciplines. They will typically have a strong background of consulting experience to couple with their expert knowledge of their field.

We will identify the key research groups who are active in the required area, and choose the academics within them who we think are best suited to the project. In every case, we will make sure that the academics that we shortlist are well-equipped and ready to tackle your business challenge.

ScholarTribe’s clients work with academics on a variety of climate-related challenges. These freelance projects vary depending on the client and industry. For example, venture capital investors often do video consultations during the due diligence process, while consumer brands often require life cycle assessments (LCAs).

We use this as an umbrella term to define everything from carbon footprinting to biodiversity challenges. If it’s helping to save the planet, we’ll get involved!
