The quantum ecosystem is growing exponentially. What started as a handful of university spinouts and research-based startups has become an international industry that includes some of the biggest tech companies. With commercial computing just over the horizon, there will likely be some jostling for position as new players enter the market and others leave.

Enter Quantum brings you the ultimate quantum computing directory. It uses the latest data from sister research company Omdia's Quantum Computing Market Tracker cross-referenced with Enter Quantum’s news coverage to ensure all the included organizations have recently been active in relevant fields.

They are organized by the region and country of their head office and then subdivided into business types – hardware, software or consultancy – though many businesses deliver a range of quantum services, alone or via partnerships. Each is accompanied by a short bio based on their own websites.
