After a quick launch and rapid ascent in 2021, the quantum industry may not have reached the heights of investment in 2022. However, in many respects, the industry showed hints of maturity and offered signs that this frontier technology is earning respect from both the scientific and business communities.
The scientific community recognized quantum with the biggest prize in Physics — the Nobel Prize — as well as a Breakthrough Prize. The business community showed deep interest in the possibilities of quantum technology through increased research, more collaborations — often combining the best academic and commercial minds — and steady investments.
While 2021 will continue to hold the record for quantum investments, several companies put together several impressive fundraising efforts. In fact, compared to startups in other technology industries that suffered from strong economic headwinds, quantum companies achieved remarkable results.
The TQI 2022 Annual Report looks at some of these stories — and more.
