Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre

The Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre was funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) in 2016 as a skills and training hub in Quantum Systems Engineering and is a key part of the UK's National Quantum Technology Programme. It is a world-leading pre-incubator for innovators for quantum inspired technologies.

QTEC offers quantum scientists and engineers, a safe environment to explore the commercial potential of their technology. The training programme allows them to develop the skills they need to set up a successful technology start-up and the team of expert mentors led by the QTEC management team, support each Fellow through the start-up process. 

Since 2016, QTEC has supported the creation of 28 active companies including KETSQLMFluoretiQ Nu QuantumQuantum DiceQURECAVector Photonics and SeeQC and a report in November 2019 showed that a third of the UK’s funded Quantum Start-ups originated at QTEC. QTEC alumni companies have raised over £63 million in equity, contract and grant funding to date and have created over 229 new highly skilled jobs for the UK Quantum Workforce.

Without QTEC I don’t think I’d be in this role today… The support system and the training I received throughout the year was instrumental in pushing me forward and helping me to go beyond my comfort zone - helping me to pursue my passion and my dreams.
