Polaris hosts annual Partnership Day celebrating 25 years in business
On 5 September 2023, 200+ gathered in central Copenhagen on a beautiful sunny day to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Polaris. Joined by investors, portfolio company professionals, board members, friends & family, and industrial advisors, the Polaris team orchestrated a day full of content and panel discussions. Managing Partner Jan Johan Kühl took the stage to give an overview of the past year and year ahead. Additionally, investors in Polaris Flexible Capital had a breakout session with Jesper Langmack and Kent Brovn Arp. An exciting development was the announcement of the launch of Polaris Public Equity, a new product led by Roger Hagborg which utilizes private equity style investing in public markets.
Come evening time, attendees walked along the water to Skuespilhuset, the Royal Danish Playhouse, for a night of cocktails on the water, dinner amidst the sunset, and the annual Polaris Award Show, in which outstanding portfolio companies are awarded for their achievements in economic and ESG initiatives. RelyOn Nutec, a PPE IV company, won the Overall Value Creation Award.
We are very pleased for the great network of partnership built over a quarter-century, and were glad to celebrate with those who helped the company reach this milestone.
