In the Business of... Quantum Computing

Tue 21 May

Jesus College

Join the Master of Jesus College, Sonita Alleyne (OBE) and Professor of Mobile Systems, Cecilia Mascolo in conversation with Entrepreneur Steve Brierley (OBE), CEO of Riverlane.
Steve Brierley founded Riverlane in 2016 to build the error correction stack for quantum computers. Driven by his conviction that fault-tolerant quantum computers will accelerate human progress, Riverlane partners with leading quantum hardware companies to make that happen sooner.

Steve has worked in quantum for over 20 years and is an expert advisor to the UK government. He holds a PhD in quantum information, spent a decade in the intelligence community and worked as a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge leading major research projects in quantum computing. In 2020, Riverlane was appointed to lead a consortium which was awarded a £7.6m government grant to build a new quantum OS, Deltaflow.OS. In April 2023, Riverlane secured £15m in a Series B fundraise to accelerate the development of Deltaflow.OS. Today, Riverlane is nearly 100 strong with offices in Cambridge, UK, and Boston, US.
