About Quix Quantum

Our Company

QuiX Quantum is a photonic quantum technology startup, located in Enschede, the Netherlands. The company was founded in January 2019 by Dr. Hans van den Vlekkert, a veteran of the photonics industry and serial entrepreneur, Dr. Jelmer Renema, an expert in quantum photonics, and a team of professors from the University of Twente.

Since then, the company has raised two rounds of funding: a pre-seed round with RAPH2Invest in 2019, and a seed round in July 2020 with and Oost NL. The company constist of a team of quantum-photonics engineers, some with a background in integrated photonics and some in quantum technologies. We are proud to have met all of our milestones: in december 2020, we brought to market a record-breaking photonic quantum processor, and we sold our first quantum processors in 2021.
Our company is centrally located on the campus of the University of Twente, at the heart of the Twente photonics ecosystem, where it is close to key partners such as Lionix International and PHIX. We believe in quantum as an ecosystem and work together closely with our technology partners and customers to continuously improve our products.

We are a fabless, horizontally integrated company, focussing on quantum computing using integrated photonics. However, we are always on the lookout for other applications of integrated photonics for quantum technologies.

Today, QuiX Quantum’s goal is the continued disruption of quantum computing with our high-tech, scalable, future-proof, plug-and-play integrated photonic solutions.
