Sophia Bendz to Join Polarium’s Board of Directors

Polarium, a leading energy storage developer, is pleased to announce that Sophia Bendz has been proposed to join the company as new board member.

Storing renewable energy so that it can be used not only when produced, but when it is needed, is one of the greatest barriers to the clean energy transition. Energy storage is the missing link in the sustainable energy system. Polarium is on a mission to unlock endless energy. Polarium supports customers ranging from telecom operators with tower sites, large-scale manufacturing plants, to the local community with one common challenge: unconditional energy stability, at a reduced energy cost and reduced climate impact.  

“We are delighted that Sophia will join Polarium’s Board of Directors. Polarium will benefit greatly from Sophia’s extensive experience of growing and scaling entrepreneurial business globally. We very much look forward to having her part of the team”, says Stefan Jansson, CEO and founder of Polarium. 
Sophia is a Partner at Cherry Ventures which she joined from Atomico, where she also served as Partner and created the firm's well-known Angel Program. Sophia also served as Spotify's Global Marketing Director, developing the audio platform into an international household name. She also acts as Board Director at the non-profit organization Race for the Baltic, is cofounder of AllBright.se, and is an innovation advisor to the Swedish Prime Minister.  
“I look forward to joining Polarium’s Board of Directors and being part of an impact business contributing to the sustainable energy transformation and striving to integrate sustainability into the core of the business” says Sophia Bendz, Partner at Cherry Ventures. 

Johan Dennelind who has served as a board member since 2021 will not stand for re-election. As an industrial advisor to Vargas, Johan will focus on alternative holdings and companies within the sphere.  
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Johan on behalf of Polarium for his dedication and contributions during these past 2,5 years”, adds Stefan Jansson.
