Whether you are a software developer interested in quantum computing, or an expert who is highly proficient in quantum information theory, you'll be able to gain a quantum speedup without the need to understand the underlying computational model. Our compiler automatically constructs quantum algorithms from classical code, so you can develop quantum algorithms for new domains without deep quantum expertise.
We democratise quantum computing applications for businesses by removing the need for quantum algorithms knowledge for software developers. For that, we are building a compiler that automatically constructs quantum algorithms from classical code.
Our company was founded in 2018 in Singapore by Dr Joe Fitzsimons, DPhil from Oxford, a specialist in quantum computing and computational complexity theory with over 15 years of experience. The leadership team also includes Dr Si-Hui Tan, PhD from MIT, who has been actively involved in quantum research for 15 years.
A seed round led by SGInnovate and seed-plus led by Sequoia Capital India allowed our company to bring its financing to SGD 4.5 million (USD 3.23 million). Other investors include Abies Ventures, DCVC, Qubit Protocol, Summer Capital and Posa CV.
Our interdisciplinary team of physicists and computer scientists is trained in top-tier science and engineering universities, such as Oxford, MIT, University of Melbourne, University of California, Berkeley, University of Waterloo, Canada, and Brown University.
Our quantum scientists average 8+ years of postdoc working experience. Individually, we have published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and continue contributing to scientific research.
Together with seasoned technical team and business staff, we pursue the same ambition: enable quantum applications for the real world by bridging the gap between software engineering and quantum computing.
Ahead of the TNW Conference in Amsterdam where our CEO Dr Joe Fitzsimons will be a speaker, he sat with Thomas Macaulay to discuss the tremendous potential of quantum computing and our industry’s current challenges, from talent shortage to the need for patient capital.
The Trinity Quantum Alliance is a new collaboration that brings together experts from research and industry, and which will provide a new custom space in Trinity East for innovative projects in quantum science and technology, simulation, education and computation in Ireland.
Singapore, 31 March 2023 – Horizon Quantum Computing, a Singapore-based company building software development tools to unlock the potential of quantum computing hardware, announced today that it has raised USD 18.1 million Series A investment from Sequoia Capital India, Tencent, SGInnovate, Pappas Capital and Expeditions Fund.
Quantum Zeitgeist featured Horizon's CEO Joe Fitzsimons in their list of 10 quantum leaders running quantum computing companies: "We love the mission to make Quantum Computing a general-purpose quantum technology. Making quantum computing truly accessible to everyone could be a world-leading quest, and we like it!”
Singapore’s great quantum quest makes the cover story of The Business Times. Our CEO Joe Fitzsimons, who was interviewed for the article, speaks about the fast development of the technology: "Year by year, month by month, even week by week, progress is made in the field."
As part of its 20th-anniversary celebrations, the Singapore Businesses Federation launched the book ‘20 Conversations’. Deputy Prime Minister Mr Heng Swee Keat was the guest of honour at the event along with the attendance of 100 business leaders, trade associations and chamber leaders.
