Project Description

Our Mission is to transform the discovery of new materials and drugs using our world-leading quantum simulation engine
We are building a simulation engine for microscopic systems, one that accurately accounts for quantum effects. We will bring the discovery of materials and drugs into a new computational era, one where the physical laboratory is used only sparingly to validate results, fundamentally accelerating the pace of discovery.

We benchmark existing quantum software and hardware to pinpoint the state-of-the-art and forecast future developments.

We develop application focused proprietary software for quantum computers.

We help our customers apply quantum computing disruptively within their organisation and industry by shipping quantum software.
