"Creative Destruction Lab - Quantum Commercialization & Entrepreneurship"


The Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) has been helping build quantum startups since 2017, with over 80 companies coming through the program and over $100M USD being created in equity value. At this session, Sam Kearney, a Venture Manager of CDL's Quantum Stream, will be talking about entrepreneurship in the quantum space, trends in quantum commercialization, and how both individuals and companies can get involved in the program.


As the Venture Manager for the Quantum Stream at the Canadian-based accelerator the Creative Destruction Lab, Sam promotes the advancement of quantum technologies by connecting players in the ecosystem and facilitating commercialization. The Creative Destruction Lab is a nonprofit organization that delivers an objectives-based program for massively scalable, seed-stage, science- and technology-based companies. The Quantum Stream brings together entrepreneurs, investors, scientists in quantum technologies, and quantum technology partners (D-Wave Systems, IBM Q, Rigetti Computing, Xanadu and Zapata Computing), to build ventures using quantum technologies for a wide range of commercial applications.

This meeting is organized by the Quantum AI Foundation.
