PODCAST: Discussing silicon-anode battery technology with Sujeet Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Ionblox

Our next pod­cast is now live! This week, we were delight­ed to be joined by Sujeet Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Ion­box.

Found­ed in 2017, the com­pa­ny — pre­vi­ous­ly known as Zen­labs Ener­gy — is a next-gen­er­a­tion ener­gy com­pa­ny trans­form­ing the future of mobil­i­ty by land and air.

In this episode, Sujeet shares more details about the com­pa­ny and its role with­in the Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty mar­ket. We dis­cuss the state of sil­i­con-anode bat­tery tech­nol­o­gy, which includes the cru­cial issue of weight, what posi­tion Ion­blox will play in the indus­try and its grow­ing part­ner­ship with Ger­man start­up Lil­i­um.

Sujeet also talks about the com­pa­ny’s Series B financ­ing round, which was secured ear­li­er this year to scale its tech­nol­o­gy and devel­op advanced high-pow­er cells for elec­tric avi­a­tion.
