Extra, extra, read all about it! Next Toronto Quantum Computing Meetup event just announced. The speaker will be physicist and tech start-up entrepreneur Wojtek Burko

The Toronto Quantum Computing Meetup is the second largest meetup in the world dedicated to quantum computing, so we claim the silver medal of Quantum Meetup Supremacy, at least for now. (currently we have 1565 Supremos as members. The biggest club is in London with a distinguished 1756 Brexiters members. We used to be the biggest, but, oh well, sic transit gloria mundi).

Those poor Brexiters. We don’t envy them one bit, or one qubit. They are in a though spot. We are so worried for them that we will soon be shipping to them a few “brexit boxes”, just in case. Just like in quantum physics, their predicament can be illustrated very well using cats. The perilous Brexit cat jump

But I digress. The main purpose of this blog post is to cordially invite you to our next meeting on Thursday, February 21, 2019. At the usual outstanding venue, Rotman School, Univ. of Toronto. Our speaker is quite impressive. I will just quote the writeup:

We are delighted to have physicist and tech start-up entrepreneur Wojtek Burko to talk about the challenges to build a venture based on the current state of the art in quantum computing.

Wojtek not only co-funded Beit.tech and succeeded in making it cash-flow positive in less than a year, but also co-launched the Bitspiration Booster VC practice, which invests in and incubates deep tech start-ups.

Before that he served as Engineering Director at Google until 2014, Chief Technology Officer at Allegro until 2015, entrepreneur, mentor, advisor, angel investor; member of the Board in several start-ups incl. EGZOTech, JAM Vehicles, Airly; chairman of the Board at ASPIRE – representing the multinational corporate scene in Poland.
