The new kids on the quantum block

18 October, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What is it about the Sydney and Australian quantum technology scene that is helping to deliver ground-breaking research, spawn new offerings and attract global players? As a recent report from the Tech Council of Australia highlighted, the quantum industry is one of Australia’s most high-potential emerging sectors. More than 3% of global quantum startups originate in Australia, compared to 1.7% of startups on average.

Over the past year, Sydney has seen the emergence of a new quantum computing startup Diraq, a spin-out from UNSW’s world-leading quantum research. Europe-based BTQ has also set up shop in the Quantum Terminal, a co-working space located in the heart of Sydney’s Tech Central precinct.

At this event, we will hear from the latest arrivals on the quantum block: CEO & Founder at Diraq, Andrew Dzurak, and Gavin Brennen, Quantum Information Advisor at BTQ. Hear their thoughts on navigating Australia’s quantum scene and what we can expect as the sector grows.
