The Quantum Startup Space in Colorado
The second Quantum Revolution is upon us which will deliver technological improvements in computing power, sensing, and communications not incrementally better but hundreds or thousands of times better than what we have today. It sounds like science fiction but it is quickly becoming scientific here and now. Colorado is a global epicenter in Quantum talent and capabilities and this is reflected in the powerhouse startup scene here built around Quantum Technologies. Come and hear a panel of representatives from the Quantum startup ecosystem in Colorado explain what Quantum technologies are, discuss the current state of Quantum development, markets, and the prominent role that Colorado startups play on the world stage.
Panelists will include:
Dan Caruso, Managing Director of Caruso Ventures, Chairman of Endeavor Colorado, avid supporter of entrepreneurship and a 3x decacorn (Zayo, Level3 and MFS) entrepreneur. Dan is the former Executive Chairman of ColdQuanta, which is leading the change to commercialize ultra cold atom technology for Quantum Computing, an investor in Maybell Quantum Industries, and advisor to Chicago Quantum Exchange’s Duality Accelerator.
