The IQT Nordics conference in late June 2024 is set to feature a keynote speech by Vishal Chatrath, a seasoned entrepreneur with a rich background in deep tech and a strong passion for innovation. As the co-founder and CEO of QuantrolOx, an Anglo-Finnish spinout from Oxford University, Chatrath is at the forefront of developing automation software designed to accelerate the scaling of quantum computers.

Chatrath’s journey in the world of technology and innovation spans over 25 years, with experiences that cut across a diverse range of fields, including optoelectronics, smartphone software, navigation systems, automotive technology, artificial intelligence, and quantum technologies. This varied background has equipped him with a unique perspective on the intersection of different technological domains and their potential impact on the future of computing.

Before his current venture at QuantrolOx, Chatrath had been deeply involved in the startup ecosystem. He founded and led several startups, including Secondmind, an AI company, and VocalIQ, which was notably acquired by Apple in 2015. His entrepreneurial spirit and ability to lead startups from inception to successful exits demonstrate his acumen in identifying and nurturing cutting-edge technologies.

In addition to his entrepreneurial ventures at QuantrolOx, Chatrath is known for his role as an active advisor to promising deep-tech startups. He is a part of the Founders Pledge, a community of entrepreneurs committed to donating some of their personal proceeds to effective social causes. This commitment reflects his broader vision of leveraging technology for social good and his dedication to driving positive change in the world.

At the IQT Nordics conference, Chatrath is expected to share insights into the challenges and opportunities in scaling quantum computers with his experience at QuantrolOx as an example. His talk will likely explore the role of automation software in enhancing quantum computing capabilities and discuss strategies for overcoming the technical hurdles in this field. Given his extensive background in AI and other deep-tech sectors, Chatrath’s perspective on integrating these technologies with quantum computing will be particularly intriguing.

Chatrath’s global experience, having lived in 15 cities across 11 countries, from the Equator to the Arctic, adds to his broad understanding of the global tech landscape. This international experience, combined with his deep-tech expertise, positions him as a speaker with a truly global and well-rounded perspective on the future of quantum technologies.

As the conference approaches, attendees look forward to gaining insights from Chatrath’s diverse experiences and visionary approach to scaling quantum computing. His leadership at QuantrolOx and his track record in nurturing and advising cutting-edge tech ventures make him a highly anticipated speaker at IQT Nordics 2024.

IQT Nordics/Helsinki, June 24-26, Aalto University, Dipoli Building, Helsinki
