🎉 Qunnect announces closing of seed round with Quantonation

Portfolio8 January 2020

A spin-off from Stony Brook University (USA, NY), Qunnect is developing a suite of devices to enable long-distance quantum-secured communications.  All products are engineered to operate at room temperature, a critical design consideration for real-world deployment.  The company’s first product, a quantum memory device, can store, coherently manipulate, temporally synchronize, and retrieve quantum-states on-demand. The memory device will be used both as a stand-alone product and as an integral component in the company’s future products.

Investors include Quantonation, the Accelerate NY Seed Fund, and private individual investors.

Christophe Jurczak (Quantonation): “The team at Qunnect has a very strong technical and business vision that is a key factor of success for Deep Tech startups. We see countries and corporations ramping up their efforts worldwide to speed up the development of quantum-secure communications, Qunnect’s technology will be a key building block for this quantum future.”
