(MarketsBusinessInsider) 1QBit announced that the company will be expanding its Canadian footprint by opening a new office in Sherbrooke with a focus on recruiting Master’s and Ph.D. researchers. With the new location located near the Institut quantique of Université de Sherbrooke, 1QBit will have a presence in every major Canadian quantum computing research hub including Greater Vancouver, Waterloo, and Sherbrooke.
“Our continued growth in the last seven years has come largely due to our effectiveness in investing in the development of Canada’s top quantum researchers,” said Andrew Fursman, CEO of 1QBit. “Many of our senior employees are former Ph.D. interns, and the new office demonstrates our passion for establishing Canada as a global leader in quantum computing.”
1QBit is a world leader in quantum computing software and quantum computing hardware optimization.
