Quantum Startup Foundry
Entrepreneurs and startups will be required to translate investments in quantum research to impact. The MQA Entrepreneurship Workgroup developed and helped launch the Quantum Startup Foundry (QSF) in 2021 to provide the resources and support needed for startups to advance these global innovations in quantum. Building on the world-class quantum capabilities and networks of the MQA members, the QSF helps to connect entrepreneurs with:
- Customers to identify promising use-cases and validate market demand,
- Leading-edge research, technical mentors, and quantum-specific infrastructure (equipment, tools, facilities) needed to develop and validate innovative products, and
- Funders and investors to catalyze their startups.
