From 3 (QC Software Companies) To Infinity and Beyond

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)

  1. 1QBit with headquarters in Vancouver, CA
  2. Cambridge Quantum Computing with headquarters in Cambridge, England
  3. 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:

  1. QxBranch, with headquarters in Washington DC (also offices in Hong Kong and Adelaide AU)
  2. QC Ware, with headquarters near San Francisco, California
Commander Buzz Lightyear, sir, reporting for Quantum Space duty, sir. Please disregarding the curious aliens following me, sir.

Commander Buzz Lightyear reporting for Quantum Space duty, sir. Please disregard the curious aliens following me, sir. I believe we have some quantum code to write that will save the galaxy, sir.



  1. At Artiste, we speak softly and carry a big stick . We are also great at corny allusions.😸

  2. Hello Dr. Tucci: I see that have been going through a roller coaster of emotions lately! I’m sorry to see that happen to you once again. Like the late Rodney Dangerfield, you seem to get “no respect!” At any rate, I have a naïve question: If the Artiste-qb.net headquarters is in Toronto, then who is running it or is in charge? Just curious. Cheer up and stay well.

  3. Hi Sol, nice to hear from you again. Founders stated in the website (2 in Toronto, and me in Boston). I’ll be okay. I’ m a great admirer of Mahatma Gandhi. He was a committed vegetarian and I am too. One famous quote of his that I find useful to remember is:

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
    Mahatma Gandhi
