Find out how today's pioneers are shaping tomorrow
Quantum technology may sound daunting to some… yet the first startups are already working on a next revolution: faster computers, a more secure internet, and ultraprecise sensors.
Quantum.Amsterdam, Startup Village and The Next Web bring you The Next Q, our intimate event where quantum enthusiast come together. We invite some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs to tell their story: What groundbreaking technology are they working on? How does their business fare in our quantum ecosystem? And what is their vision on our future? No prior knowledge of quantum required.
It’s all free, but but we have a limited number of seats. Make sure you sign up for each individual part of the program trough Eventbrite (links below).

Prof. Michele Mosca (University of Waterloo)
Prof. Mosca is one of the most influential individuals in the world of Quantum Technology. He is co-founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing and the prestigious Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He is also the CEO of evolutionQ, a security company that addresses the threat of quantum computing, and author of the Quantum Threat Timeline reports. Mosca is especially well-known for Mosca’s Theorem, a statement about when companies should start migrating to quantum-safe cryptography.
During this Lunch Lecture, Mosca will elaborate the consequences that quantum computers will have on security, and why it’s urgent to act soon.
Attendance is free, but a sign-up ticket is required.
