VP Sales - evolutionQ
Who Is evolutionQ & How Are They Changing the World?
evolutionQ is on a mission to protect the world from the threat of quantum computing.
Powerful new quantum technologies promise tremendous benefits (think innovation in medicine and energy), but also pose serious threats to cybersecurity. evolutionQ is the first company worldwide dedicated to offering the full suite of services and software products organizations need to manage their quantum risk and protect against the threat of quantum computers being used to break existing security protocols that protect all of us.
They’re not alone in sounding the alarm: President Biden has signed 2 directives recognizing the need to mitigate the risks quantum computers pose to national and economic security.
“Quantum computers are coming, and all our digital infrastructures are vulnerable,” said Dr. Michele Mosca, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of evolutionQ. “The stakes are too high to be unprepared, and that’s why we’re passionate about helping organizations protect their digital systems and safeguard against future attacks.”
Founded in 2015, they have 20+ employees across Canada and Germany and some of the most brilliant minds in the industry - led by world-renowned quantum computing experts Dr. Michele Mosca and Dr. Norbert Lütkenhaus.
They are creating a new standard to help Fortune 500 companies future-proof their businesses. To date, they’ve focused primarily on financial services, government, telecommunications & healthcare with early successful customer pilots.
Their recent Series A financing (US $5.5M) led by Quantonation, a Paris-based, quantum technology-focused VC fund, with support from Toronto’s The Group Ventures and Silicon Valley investors, means they’re well-positioned to scale faster and help more organizations future-proof their systems.
