Duality quantum accelerator accepts four startups into latest cohort


The Chicago-based Duality quantum accelerator has accepted its latest cohort of four startups, which are developing solutions for a secure quantum internet, enabling the manufacture of products in microgravity, and accelerating the adoption of quantum computing and photonics.

Duality is led by the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Chicago and the Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE), along with founding partners, the University of Illinois Urbana-ChampaignArgonne National Laboratory, and P33.

Launched in April 2021, Duality is a first-of-its-kind accelerator aimed at supporting next-generation startups focused on quantum science and technology. The 12-month program provides world-class business and entrepreneurship training from its partner institutions and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

“It’s delightful to see our collective vision for Duality continue to thrive and impact the quantum ecosystem with such phenomenal momentum since we launched,” said Duality Director Ezunial (Eze) Burts III. “We are excited to welcome four startups into the third cohort of Duality, and galvanize our powerful ecosystem to equip these innovators with the resources needed to scale their businesses. Not only will they rapidly develop quantum technology to tackle real-world problems, they will also create jobs and high-performing teams that will generate economic impact across the city of Chicago, the broader region, and across the globe.”
