Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre
The Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre is a key part of the UK's National Quantum Technnology Programme and is a world-leading incubator for innovators for quantum inspired technologies.
QTEC offers a twelve-month salaried fellowship to quantum scientists, allowing them a safe environment to explore the commercial potential of their technology ideas. 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 31 new companies including KETS, QLM, FluoretiQ Nu Quantum, Quantum Dice, QURECA, Vector 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 a total of £41.6 million in equity, contract and grant funding to date and have created over 100 new highly skilled jobs for the UK Quantum Workforce.
