EeroQ chooses the Terminal in Chicago for 9,600 Square foot quantum computing lab

(BusinessWire) EeroQ, a leader in the field of quantum computing, is moving its headquarters to Chicago at The Terminal, an IBT Group development. EeroQ has signed a lease for a 9,600 square foot engineering lab and office, which will continue the strong momentum for both Chicago quantum computing and Mayor Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West initiative, as well as The Terminal’s position as a premier hub for advanced technology in Chicago.
EeroQ, with an engineering team led by professors from Princeton University and Michigan State University, offers a unique chip design with the potential to leapfrog to the front of the race. Today’s QC players include IBM, Google, Honeywell, Amazon, and many other large enterprises. Alongside such large players, EeroQ is a founding member of the United States Quantum Industry Coalition.
“This is great news for a couple of reasons. First, EeroQ’s move into The Terminal in Humboldt Park is aligned with our INVEST South/West strategy, which allows us to invest in under-resourced neighborhoods across the South and West Sides by creating new jobs, businesses and access to opportunity for all residents,” said Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “Second, Chicago is primed to become a major hub for quantum technology thanks to a number of notable investments which will have long term benefits for our entire region. Thus, in choosing to operate on Chicago’s West Side, EeroQ will not only be well-positioned to capitalize on the many opportunities that quantum technology will drive, but also help to revitalize communities in need.”
“Chicago will become a leading center for quantum computing,” said Nick Farina, EeroQ CEO. “Talent and local support are critical, and we have found all of that in Chicago with a world-class base of quantum computing talent and unmatched local support. We conducted a national search for a headquarters and Chicago was by far the best option for us.”

EeroQ is thrilled to receive support from key stakeholders in Chicago’s quantum computing revolution:
