The Inside Quantum Technology conference in The Hague in 2024 is poised to feature a highly accomplished speaker: Noel Goddard, the CEO of Qunnect Inc. Goddard’s leadership at Qunnect is instrumental in pioneering first-in-class hardware that is transforming the existing telecom infrastructure into quantum-secure communication networks. This innovation is crucial for the future of telecommunications in the era of quantum technology.

Before ascending to the CEO position at Qunnect, Goddard significantly impacted the startup ecosystem as a seed investor with the Accelerate NY Seed Fund. In this role, she demonstrated a sharp acumen for identifying and nurturing promising ventures in deep technology and life sciences, particularly in the New York City metropolitan area. This experience has undoubtedly enriched her understanding of the technological landscape and the dynamics of startup growth.

Goddard’s entrepreneurial journey is marked by her founding a company and later serving as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of another startup in New York City. Her experiences across these roles have equipped her with a multifaceted perspective on technology development and business strategy.

In her academic career, Goddard was a professor of physics at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY), where she played a vital role in educating and inspiring future scientists. She also completed her postdoctoral research as a fellow at the prestigious Harvard University, contributing significantly to her field of study.

At the IQT the Hague conference, attendees can look forward to Goddard’s insights into Qunnect’s innovative endeavors in quantum-secure communications. Her presentation is expected to delve into the intricacies of developing quantum-secure networks, the evolution of quantum communication technologies, and their broader societal and industrial implications. Goddard’s unique blend of academic excellence, entrepreneurial success, and investment expertise makes her a leading voice in the quantum technology sector.

Goddard’s participation in the conference highlights the increasing prominence of women in technology and leadership within the quantum field. Her journey from academia to leading a cutting-edge quantum technology company exemplifies innovation, perseverance, and visionary leadership.

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, 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.
