Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech is a deep-tech startup that addresses real-life quantum-ready problems. Qilimanjaro’s integrated hardware & software team co-designs high quality superconducting qubit-based app-specific quantum computers. It has already commissioned its first client gate-based system. In parallel, it is targeting next-generation analog quantum computers with easy-to-use cloud access to effectively address complex optimisation and ML problems. It also provides services for businesses to become quantum-ready, particularly on quantum algorithms, quantum simulation and classical/quantum computer approaches. It has closed significant customer contracts since its first year of operation, and has become a key contributor to the European Commission’s AVaQus H2020 project on coherent quantum annealing. Qilimanjaro is a spin-off from the Barcelona Supercomputer Center (BSC), the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Institute of High-Energy Physics (IFAE).
