Quantum computing is the way forward. It can do a lot of good, if used the right way.

The world is waiting for a large scale, universal quantum computer. Despite the hype, we’re still a long way from that being a reality. At EeroQ, founded in 2016, we believe the positive potential is worth striving for. Proud sponsor of Q2B 2018!

EeroQ's Values

We’re not saying it’ll be us, but someone is going to realize the full power of building a quantum computer. We’ll need to harness the power carefully, when it comes. This is why we’re sponsoring academic work on the ethics of QC, and will look to build an industry-leading ethics platform led by co-founder Faye Wattleton.

Quantum computing in five lines

Quantum bits (qubits) provide shortcuts to certain algorithms, drastically decreasing computation time

and opening the door to solving problems

that could never be cracked

on a traditional computer.


“You can’t ignore how much quantum computing is going to change every other branch of science, but also everything else.”

Stephanie Simmons

leader of the Silicon Quantum Technology research group
