Interaction between startups and investor communities is extremely important. That’s why QURECA and tec-connection have teamed up to host the Quantum Pitch Competition 2021.

The Quantum Pitch Competition 2021 will give Quantum startups the opportunity to pitch their organisations to an audience of eager investors. The competition will be hosted virtually on the 24th of November. Startups and investors from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply.

QURECA and tec-connection hosted a similar event last year – The UK-Switzerland Investors Day. The event was a huge success. Companies who pitched at the event included: KETS, Quantum South and QuantFi. QURECA and tec-connection prior experience ensures that the Quantum Pitch Competition 2021 will be a useful and insightful day for all attendees.

“Private investors and funding agencies are key for the advancement of fundamental research to develop the technology and the market” said QURECA CEO, Dr. Araceli Venegas-Gomez. “We hope the competition will make a positive impact in the Quantum fields and lead to increased investment and new technology.”
