Jan Westerhues, a seasoned deep-tech venture capitalist and Partner at Bosch Ventures, is set to speak at the IQT the Hague conference. Westerhues brings over 15 years of experience in investment management, focusing on deep tech innovations, a domain that spans several cutting-edge technologies, including quantum computing. His tenure at Bosch Ventures, based in the Frankfurt Am Main area, Germany, underscores his pivotal role in identifying and nurturing high-potential startups poised to disrupt traditional industries with novel technologies.

Westerhues’ engagement extends beyond investment management into active participation in the governance of pioneering companies. His role as a board member at Quantum Motion, SCINTIL Photonics, and previously at Robart GmbH, as well as a board observer at IonQ Inc., showcases his commitment to steering these entities toward achieving their strategic objectives. Quantum Motion and SCINTIL Photonics, in particular, represent his foray into the quantum technology landscape, highlighting the increasing importance of quantum computing and related technologies in the portfolio of forward-looking investors. Now at Bosch Ventures, Westerhues looks back at his many different positions to inform his current investment moves.

At the IQT The Hague conference, Jan Westerhues is expected to share insights into the venture capital perspective on quantum technology investments, illuminating the criteria investors use to evaluate potential investments in this nascent but rapidly growing field. His discussions will likely cover startups’ challenges and opportunities in attracting venture capital, the importance of strategic partnerships, and the evolving landscape of quantum technology from an investment standpoint, using his work at Bosch Ventures as an example.

IQT The Hague 2024 is the Netherlands’ fifth global conference and exhibition. The Hague is a Quantum Technology Event focusing on Quantum Networking and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panel talks from over 100 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding of state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet and the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity and quantum computers.

The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers, and investors working on current developments. IQT The Hague is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, QuTech, QIA (Quantum Internet Alliance), and Quantum Delta NL, who will bring leading organizations and professionals together in this important event. The April conference is “in-person” to ensure maximum networking and discussion at the Postillion Hotel & Convention Centre in The Hague.
