We build and deliver quantum
computers for the world

IQM is a global leader in building quantum computers

IQM was founded in 2018 by a highly ambitious team of world-leading scientists having built several successful quantum labs and research centers globally during the past two decades.
We had an audacious vision – to build quantum computers with a profound impact on humanity. The timing was perfect as international spotlight on quantum technology was growing, both in the public and private sectors, setting the stage for a transformative opportunity. Undertaking the task of building a quantum computer from scratch, we recognized an extraordinary opportunity to contribute something truly exceptional. The team’s pioneering work started with breakthroughs in qubit reset, readout, and thermal management towards large-scale quantum processors. Since then, the work has progressed to unique hardware advantages and novel concepts around digital-analog quantum computing.
"Our Nordic heritage has been instrumental in shaping an environment where brilliance thrives with minimal friction," Dr. Jan Goetz, Co-CEO and Co-founder.
What once started as a spin out from Aalto University and VTT in Finland, quickly became one of the world's largest and most renowned quantum businesses, with a mission to build world-leading quantum computers for the well-being of humankind.

Today, we proudly build and deliver full stack quantum computers and applications to HPCs, research institutes, universities, and business enterprises.

Using quantum computing technologies for the well-being of humankind and creating a safer world for our future generations

Retaining technology sovereignty and establishing Europe as a technology leader to create a secure future

Creating future jobs by commercializing quantum hardware and software

Reskilling the workforce with industrial trainings, educational programs and development initiatives

Creating networks of decision makers, public policy makers and universities to put quantum computing on the European agenda

Why now?


Europe, with more than 4.000 Universities, provides most of the physics talents working abroad, causing a brain drain phenomenon.


IQM already has offices in Espoo, Finland; Munich, Germany; Madrid, Spain; and Paris, France, and intends to accelerate its global growth.


Extraordinary progress in scaling quantum computers globally


Quantum computing will be here sooner than expected.


IQM is the Pan-European category leader in building full-stack quantum computers with its own fabrication facility, design, software and one of the largest quantum engineering teams in the world.

What our clients say

We share a common goal: We work to integrate quantum into HPC systems in a way that is usable and useful for researchers seeking to level up their results with the computational upgrade this hybrid approach will bring.

Prof. Dr. Dieter Kranzlmüller
Chairman of the Board of Directors, LRZ

We are excited to say that the hard work of our teams from VTT and IQM is paying off, and we are on track to demonstrate the first stage of the project - a functioning quantum computer.
