At QuTech, we believe in an ecosystem’s approach and work with companies and spin-outs in our direct surroundings. The newly formed community of quantum-tech research groups and business in Delft formally launched in 2020 as QDNL Delft: a vibrant ecosystem where top-quality scientists, engineers, students and entrepreneurs work together on the frontier of quantum.
Find here some examples of collaborations with spin-outs Q*Bird and Orange Quantum Systems and other companies in the Delft ecosystem:
- After operating as an engineering group inside QuTech for three years, Q*Bird launched in 2023. They provide technology for quantum secure networking, upgradable to future connectivity. One example is a new quantum network they are building for the Port of Rotterdam stakeholders to use for their critical communication systems.
- Spin-out Orange Quantum Systems was launched in 2020. They support R&D labs with custom characterization and calibration software, and develop customized full-stack setups for R&D into quantum computing. In September 2022, they were one of the winners of the first ‘Quantum SME call’.
- We work with spinoff QBlox on qubit control electronics. In March 2022, QBlox announced it would become the first Dutch company to join the Quantum Economic Development Consortium. In 2023, Deloitte named Qblox the fastest-growing high-tech hardware company in the Netherlands.
- Other examples of pioneering companies that are part of the Delft ecosystem, some of whom find their origins at QuTech, are Quantware, QphoX, and Single Quantum.
