Quantinuum, a leading quantum computing company formed in 2021 via a merger between Honeywell Quantum Solutions and Cambridge Quantum, has raised an additional $300 million in its latest funding round. Major backers include Honeywell, JPMorgan Chase, Mitsui & Co, and Amgen.
The fresh capital injection comes on top of the approximate $625 million already invested into Quantinuum since its launch. With prior backing of Cambridge Quantum also accounted for, total investments into Quantinuum add up to around $1.3 billion.
The substantial financing highlights investors’ confidence in Quantinuum’s vision to develop the world’s first fault-tolerant, universal quantum computers. The funds will accelerate Quantinuum’s hardware roadmap while also expanding its quantum software platform to enhance real-world applications.
Quantinuum’s quantum technologies are already being used by leading corporations including Airbus, BMW, HSBC, and Thales to tackle complex problems in materials science, energy transition, cybersecurity, and next-generation AI. The company now has over 500 employees across its dual headquarters in Colorado and Cambridge, UK.
The successful raise signals Quantinuum cementing its pole position to commercialize quantum computing on a large scale in the years ahead. With backing from major industry players, Quantinuum seems poised to spearhead the real-world quantum revolution spanning across sectors.
