The IQT Vancouver/Pacific Rim Conference in early June 2024 will feature Doug Finke, the Chief Content Officer for Global Quantum Intelligence (GQI), a leading business intelligence organization focused on the quantum industry, and the Managing Editor at the Quantum Computing Report. Finke’s extensive experience in the computer, semiconductor, and storage industries, combined with his leadership in quantum technology analysis, makes him a valuable speaker for the conference, particularly for attendees interested in quantum technology’s business and market aspects.

Global Quantum Intelligence, formed as a merger between three quantum analyst organizations, including the Quantum Computing Report (QCR), which Finke founded in 2015, is at the forefront of providing business intelligence in the quantum industry. Under Finke’s guidance, QCR became a key resource for industry professionals, researchers, and investors seeking to understand the rapidly evolving landscape of quantum computing.

Finke’s career in the tech industry spans over 30 years, during which he has been instrumental in driving the growth of many new technologies. His role as the Chief Operating Officer at IntelliSense, a startup company that was eventually sold for a valuation of $750 million, highlights his acumen in business development and his ability to navigate the complex landscape of high-tech startups.

As Vice-President of Marketing and Business Development at the semiconductor startup ChipWrights, Finke was crucial in raising $25 million in venture capital funding. His experience also includes significant tenures at major firms like IBM, Intel, and HGST/Western Digital, where he contributed to various aspects of technology development and market strategy.

Finke holds degrees in computer engineering from the University of Illinois and management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His educational background, combining technical expertise with business strategy, equips him with a deep understanding of the intersection between technology innovation and market dynamics.

At the IQT Vancouver/Pacific Rim Conference, Doug Finke is expected to provide valuable insights into the quantum industry’s business landscape, with his work at Global Quantum Intelligence and the Quantum Computing Report as examples. His presentation will likely cover trends and forecasts in quantum computing, strategies for commercializing quantum technologies, and insights into the investment climate surrounding these emerging technologies.
