Quantum computing startups
There are of course several nonprofit institutions (universities, NASA) and large companies (Google, Microsoft, D-Wave, Lockheed Martin) writing software for quantum computers. But are there any small companies /startups doing this? I know of 3 such companies created so far (please let me know in the comments if you know of any others)
- 1QBit with headquarters in Vancouver, CA
- Cambridge Quantum Computing with headquarters in Cambridge, England
- Artiste-qb.net (earlier website here) with headquarters in Toronto, Canada
(There is also a San Fran startup called Rigetti Computing, but they are designing QC hardware, not software, so I didn’t include them in the list. There are also some quantum cryptography companies, but that is a moribund field with very little connection to quantum computing)
I work for Artiste-qb.net. Email us if you would like to invest in a QC software startup, and you want us to explain to you the reasons why we think we are lightyears ahead of the competition (not the least of which is our 11 key patents portfolio, with more patents in the works).
Other small companies that I learned about later from the commenters:
