Hubs city by night - Delft
Ecosystem for innovation
Quantum Delft

QuTech, the mission driven institute for quantum computing and internet, founded in 2013, is the central player in the Quantum Delft ecosystem.

Quantum Delft is a unique ecosystem that has been decades in the making: a hotspot for excellent scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs who rigorously lead the way in quantum technology.

  • The place to accelerate: Delft is unique for its engineering culture and top facilities
  • People: be inspired by a host of innovative and multidisciplinary talent
  • A front row seat to innovation: tap into the future by partnering with industry leaders, top scientific groups and creative startups

Quantum Delft is a rich community with partners that not only work on quantum tech, but also develop sensors, algorithms, electronics, and other vital elements. These partners include:

Qblox, a Delft startup

Qblox was founded in 2018: a spinoff of QuTech’s activities in the field of electronics development. The company focuses on refinement of the ‘stack’ of electronic components needed to manipulate qubits and build a universal quantum computer. Scaling up the existing prototype quantum computers, which have just a handful of qubits, to create computers with hundreds or thousands of qubits, depends on corresponding progress being made with the control electronics. Qblox is entering a market dominated by established electronics giants, whose standard products do not meet the quantum computing community’s existing needs, and more importantly that community’s future needs. The company is a textbook example of how an expertise mix (covering fields such as quantum theory, electronics and computer science) can be created to yield bespoke output and sound product support.
