The Quantum Startup Pitch Competition

 Deadline Date: June 02, 2024

 Donor Name: Connected DMV

 Grant Size: $10,000 to $100,000

Submissions are now open for the Quantum Startup Pitch Competition 2024.

It all begins with an idea. If you lead a startup or emerging company that’s utilizing quantum science and technology, they want to hear from you. At the Quantum World Congress 2024, they are focusing on the convergence of quantum science and technology with adjacent technologies like AI, cybersecurity, photonics, optics, and cryogenics. This powerful synergy unlocks possibilities across numerous sectors and industries. They’re looking for innovative solutions that can commercialize and push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Is your company leveraging artificial intelligence in conjunction with quantum to optimize systems and processes, or leveraging machine learning to improve error correction? Are you developing encryption protocols for securing data in a post-quantum computing world? Are you developing viable capabilities in adjacent technologies that deliver value to the quantum industry? Are you using quantum and quantum-adjacent technologies to deliver mission value to key sectors?

They are looking for innovative companies, US-based or international-based, that are developing and deploying applied quantum technologies. Applicants must demonstrate the value of quantum technologies in convergence with adjacent technologies to deliver more efficient and new solutions and innovations to defined industries or markets. 

How it works?

  • Submit your proposal for the opportunity to pitch your idea to a panel of leading advisors and emerging technology experts. Five to seven startups will be selected by a committee from Deep Tech Lab – Quantum, MITRE, Potomac Quantum Innovation Center, Quantum Industry Coalition, QED-C, Québec Quantique, Quantum Startup Foundry, and other industry specialists. 
  • Finalists will receive guidance and support on their pitches from mentors at NEXT powered by Shulman Rogers. Finalists will be invited to Quantum World Congress 2024 (with complimentary access for the full 3 days) to pitch and compete for the $25,000 prize and other goodies!
